Summer Series on Fall Teaching: Teaching and Learning Center

Each Monday until the beginning of the school year, the HLBLL blog will feature a Summer Series on Fall Teaching (SSOFT), with brief writeups and links to resources in the CUNY world and beyond to help you prepare for the upcoming semester of teaching in CUNY.

This week, SSOFT features the Graduate Center’s Teaching and Learning Center.

Past SSOFT features:
Free course sites and Social Paper: OpenCUNY, The CUNY Academic Commons, and Social Paper
Resource Repositories: CUNY Syllabus Project, CUNY Academic Works

The Graduate Center’s Teaching and Learning Center

The Graduate Center’s Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) was founded in 2015 and is officially part of the Office of Career Planning and Professional Development. The TLC’s inaugural director is Dr. Luke Waltzer, a Graduate Center alumnus in History and former professor at Baruch College. The Center is also staffed by three fellows: Anke Geertsma, Andrew McKinney, and Avra Spector.

The TLC hosts regular workshops throughout the semester on issues germane to teaching at CUNY, from teaching English Language Learners to designing courses. The summer schedule is set to help Graduate Center students prepare their syllabi for the coming semester with three drop-in workshop sessions on August  19 (10am-2pm), August 22 (12pm-4pm), and August 23 (3pm-7pm), all taking place in room 9204. Additionally, the TLC hosts regular office hours during the semester (schedule TBA), and summer office hours are by appointment only. Email tlc@gc.cuny.edu to request a summer appointment.

The TLC staff is working hard to publish guides for Graduate Center students as they navigate teaching at CUNY and beyond. Current published guides are New To Teaching?, WAC-WID/QR (about the Writing Across the Curriculum/Quantitative Reasoning fellowship year), and Navigating CUNY. More guides on everything from instructional technology to going on the job market are forthcoming.

Keep up with and join discussions on the upcoming TLC events, announcements of new guides, and other news, including relevant fellowship opportunities on their CUNY Academic Commons public group.

And follow the TLC on Twitter.
