May 2 Teach@CUNY Day

I write to invite you to register for Teach@CUNY Day on Monday, May 2, 2016, on the Concourse Level of the Graduate Center, from 9am-4pm. The day will offer both a celebration of teaching across the CUNY system and an introduction for those new or relatively new to teaching to some of the methodologies and approaches used across CUNY’s classrooms.

We will gather in the Proshansky Auditorium by 10am for a welcome and then a keynote address by Dr. Stephen Brier, Professor, Urban Education.

We will then offer workshops on the following tracks:

  • New to the Classroom
  • Technology in the Classroom
  • Working with the Library
  • Writing Across the Curriculum
  • Experiential Learning
  • Diversity in CUNY’s Classrooms

Workshop facilitators are drawn from across CUNY and the Graduate Center, and will include Nora Almeida, Flannery Amdahl, Gillian Bayne, Lisa Blankenship, Charlie Edwards, Shelly Eversley, Robert Farrell, Julia Furay, Anke Geertsma, Barrie Gellis, Matt Gold, Alexandra Hamlett, Miriam Laskin, Jordana Lovett, Carmina Makar, Michael Mandiberg, Neera Mohess, Michele Piso, Katina Rogers, Gwen Shaw, Shawn(ta) Smith, Michael Branson Smith, Avra Spector, Gayathri Devi Raghupathy, Jyoti Panta, Mariana Regalado, Jody R. Rosen, Destry Sibley, Jenna Spevack, and Bree Zuckerman.

After the workshops, we will arrange conversations by disciplinary clusters so that attendees can unpack what that they’ve explored in their workshops within the context of the subjects they teach.

Space is limited, so please register to reserve your spot at

Registration is open to anyone across CUNY, and we ask you to register even if you can only attend part of the day. We will follow up a few days before the event with both a more detailed schedule of workshops and to confirm your registration.

Looking forward to seeing you on May 2!
