New Faculty Series
The Teaching Hour: For LGBTQ+ Faculty
The Teaching Hour series aims to foster a teaching community 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 the Center for Teaching and Learning. 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.
The November 28th session is for LGBTQ+ Faculty. For this session, we will be reading and discussing ‘The Plight of Being a Gay Teacher‘ by Amanda Machado.
All are welcome. Registration is strongly encouraged. Wine and cheese reception will follow the session.
Date: Wednesday, November 28, 2018
Time: 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM
Location: Butler Library Room 203
Inclusive Teaching Intensive for Faculty: Course Design to Include All Students
This is a moderate-level session designed for and open to faculty only. In a cohort of peers, you will meaningfully apply principles of inclusive teaching and learn how making changes to your syllabi, assessment strategies, and classroom activities can help foster an inclusive course climate for all students. You and your peers will workshop course materials (including course content, accessibility standards, and course policies) and commit to making changes to future practice.
The deadline to apply is Wednesday, November 21, 2018.
