8/21-22 – TLC Late Summer Institute

The Teaching and Learning Center will host a Late Summer Institute on August 21st and 22nd from 10am to 3pm in Room 3317 at the CUNY Graduate Center. The Late Summer Institute is open to all students and faculty at the Graduate Center, and will provide support and community as we prepare our courses for the Fall 2023 semester.

On both days, the morning session will offer several discussion rooms for instructors to receive feedback and guidance on syllabi, assignments, ed tech, hybrid/online courses design, classroom practices and grading. At 1pm instructors are invited to engage with TLC and their peers in themed conversation on topics such as abolitionist pedagogy, teaching in the age of AI, and attendee-suggested topics. Individual meetings with TLC staff are available after 3pm.
