Hunter College Libraries, Office of the Provost, the Office of Research Administration, and the Academic Center for Excellence in Research and Teaching (ACERT) are hosting a series of events that will bring faculty members together with representatives from college-wide offices and departments that offer resources for faculty research and teaching. Each department will provide information and details about their resources in an informal setting, with ample time for questions and discussion. [Details...]
For our second Assessment Breakfast of the semester we will meet and hear from Pamela Clark, our new SEEK Director, as well as talk about how to assess non-academic programs. Come hungry and ready to learn! [Details...]
Traditional methods of teaching organic chemistry via lecture do not provide active learning opportunities for students. Instead, meaningful learning occurs when students are encouraged to participate and work on problems rather than waiting to copy instructors’ answers. We report how the use of “iPad with AirServer” in an organic chemistry lecture course can make student thinking visible.
A project conceived by the 2014-2015 Assessment Fellows made an appearance at the ACRL Assessment in Action poster session at the annual meeting of the American Library Association this summer. The project was an effort to activate Hunter’s learning communities by fostering deeper collaboration between faculty in the library and in the first-year writing program.
