Lunchtime Seminars

Lunchtime Seminars

At lunchtime (12 pm – 2 pm) on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Hunter faculty and invited guests speak about methods they use to engage students; approaches to assessing teaching effectiveness; how they incorporate technology to enhance teaching and learning in the classroom; and other aspects of faculty professional practice. Our team of educational technologists and other members of the ACERT team are also on hand to answer questions. Past seminars have addressed critical thinking across different disciplines, using portfolios and reflection to enhance classroom instruction, connecting teaching and undergraduate research, and working with the Institutional Review Board (IRB).
