This Week for Faculty: Teaching Hour for Black & Latinx, LGBTQ+, and Women of Color Faculty
The Teaching Hour
The 2019-2020 Teaching Hour series aims to build on the teaching community fostered through last year’s series among Columbia’s underrepresented and diverse faculty population. Each of the sessions will focus on questions and concerns participants bring to the forum and will be facilitated by staff from the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement.
These conversations will cultivate a community of peer mentorship by providing space for faculty instructors to share their successes and concerns related to teaching at Columbia. As we explore issues of diversity with both faculty and students in mind, we will collectively generate strategies to improve teaching practices, meet students’ needs, and support faculty in their various roles on campus. The three sessions are for Black and Latinx, LGBTQ+, and women of color faculty.
Time: 3:00 – 4:30 PM
Location: 212 Butler Library
Teaching Large Classes
Teaching large classes can present unique challenges that pertain to building rapport with and engaging students, managing large amounts of grading, using TAs effectively, and upholding academic integrity. In this session, faculty will explore these challenges and discuss evidence-based strategies to make large classes more manageable and enjoyable for faculty and students alike.
