This Week for Graduate Students: Seeking Co-Facilitators for Pedagogies of Race and Oppression Learning Community
Call for Applications: Seeking Co-Facilitators for Pedagogies of Race and Oppression Learning Community
The CTL is excited to share an opportunity via the GSAS Office of Academic Diversity and Inclusion (OADI) to co-facilitate the Pedagogies of Race and Oppression Learning Communities in Fall 2021 and Spring 2022. Please see below for more information about the role, eligibility criteria, and application logistics. Applications are due July 26, 2021.
The GSAS Office of Academic Diversity and Inclusion seeks 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 Columbia’s Center for Teaching and Learning.
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 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 the Columbia graduate community in collective exploration and learning about focused topics in pedagogy and teaching practice as they relate to race and marginalization.
Qualified applicants should have some experience teaching college students or adult learners, be comfortable discussing concepts related to racism and oppression, and have some familiarity with one or more relevant pedagogical frames.
The Learning Community collectively engages focused topics in pedagogy and practice as they relate to race and marginalization, with particular emphasis on anti-racist and anti-oppression pedagogy. Participants explore how various forms of oppression shape teaching and learning at Columbia and develop skills to support anti-racist and anti-oppression pedagogical thinking and practice.
