Drop-In Hours

Columbia graduate students are invited to drop by every Friday from 2-4 pm to check in with CTL staff.

And coffee and tea are always on hand!

Time: 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Location: 212 Butler Library

Upcoming Events


Language Lounge: Making Classwork Accessible 

Participants will examine the intersections of evidence-based language instruction and the frameworks presented by Universal Design for Learning to consider ways to make classwork more accessible to all students. In particular, we’ll think about the ways we engage audiovisual materials and handouts in the classroom to align with evidence-based practices without sacrificing the inclusion of all students. 

This session counts as a pedagogy workshop for the Teaching Development Program (TDP)

Date: Wednesday, November 20
Time: 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM
Location: 212 Butler Library

Teaching Materials Peer Review Session


Looking for a supportive, informal environment to refine course materials (syllabi, lesson plans) or job market materials (teaching statements, diversity statements, teaching portfolio)? Drop by with a draft, and work with other graduate students to give and receive feedback using a lightly structured peer-review process developed by CTL. CTL staff will be on hand to offer advice and pertinent resources to all participants — as well as coffee and light snacks. Participants are asked to bring draft material (however preliminary) to be able to exchange and discuss.

Date: Friday, November 22
Time: 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM
Location: 212 Butler Library
