Teach@CUNY Summer Institute August 13-August 17

The Teaching and Learning Center is pleased to announce the Teach@CUNY Summer Institute, which will take place August 13-August 17 at the Graduate Center. Participants in the Institute will engage in a series of talks, workshops, and collaborative exercises designed to prepare them to teach in the fall semester and beyond. Over the course of the week, students will be introduced to the experience of teaching at CUNY; explore approaches to syllabus and assignment design and assessment; receive guidance on the integration of educational technology and library resources into courses; and take part in conversations about teaching in their disciplines, and much more. By the end of the Institute, participants will have a draft of a syllabus, at least one fully scaffolded assignment, and at least one lesson plan. Attendees will also learn about the wealth of resources available at the Graduate Center and throughout CUNY to support teaching and learning.

The Institute is intended for those who have not yet taught college courses, and its goal is to make their first semesters in the classroom more rewarding and successful.

Participants are expected to attend each day of the Institute from roughly 9-5pm, and will be paid an honorarium of $750 for participating the entire week.

The Teach@CUNY Summer Institute can accommodate up to 60 participants in Summer 2018, and priority for registration will go to current first-year students on Graduate Teaching or Science Fellowships. The TLC has reserved twenty slots for each of the three disciplinary clusters at the Graduate Center: the Humanities, the Social Sciences, and the Sciences. Students should register at the link below as soon as possible, and will be notified in early March if they are accepted into the Institute. Those who are not accepted into the Institute will be added to a waitlist.

Please do NOT register if you are not able to attend in person for the entirety of the Institute, as doing so will deny another Graduate Center student the opportunity to participate.

For Graduate Center students who wish to attend the Institute but are not able to, the Teaching and Learning Center will make the curriculum available online, and will hold additional workshops before the start of the Fall 2018 semester.
