Deadline Extension: Seeking Co-Facilitators for Pedagogies of Race and Oppression Learning Community

The GSAS Office of Academic Diversity and Inclusion (OADI) and Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) seek two advanced doctoral students (years 3-7) from departments within GSAS who would work together to co-facilitate its Pedagogies of Race and Oppression Learning Community in AY2021-2022. This Learning Community is offered in partnership with the CTL. The deadline has been extended to August 23, 2021.

The co-facilitators are appointed as OADI Fellows and are provided with a $3000 stipend for the year, beginning in August 2021 and ending in May 2022. With ongoing guidance and administrative support from OADI and CTL staff, the fellows work as a pair to create and deliver a year-long series of activities (3 sessions each in fall and spring semester) to engage Learning Community participants in collective exploration and learning about focused topics in pedagogy and teaching practice as they relate to race and/or marginalization.

Qualified applicants should have some experience teaching college students or adult learners, be comfortable discussing concepts related to racism and/or oppression, and have some familiarity with one or more relevant pedagogical frames.

Learn more about this past year’s learning community here, and apply for the fellowship here (search for Job ID 406) by August 23, 2021. If you have any questions about this opportunity, please contact

Fall 2021 Teaching Orientation for Graduate Students

CTL offers graduate student instructors orientations to learn about practical, evidence-based strategies that they can implement on the first day of class. These orientations help supplement department-based orientations and trainings. CTL orientations are open to all new teaching assistants, teaching fellows, and graduate students in an instructor role.
CTL is offering orientation materials online, available to graduate students anytime. Orientation consists of a series of five self-paced modules.

In addition to these on-demand modules, we are also offering one-hour debrief sessions with CTL staff both in-person and online in early September. These live sessions will offer opportunities to discuss module highlights, get individual feedback on policy sheets or first day of class plans, and engage in Q&A.
