|From WAC to Manifold: An Open Discussion on How We Write, Publish, and Teach Writing (NEW TOPIC)
This year marks twenty years since the CUNY Board of Trustees implemented the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) initiative that encouraged instructors in all disciplines to make connections between writing, thinking, and learning. In this lunchtime seminar, we will explore what a WAC-based curriculum looks like at Hunter, particularly in light of the many new digital technologies and online resources.
OER Showcase: Innovative Teaching with Reduced Textbook Costs
Zero Cost Textbook courses and CUNY’s Open Educational Resources (OER) initiative are important avenues towards lowering the cost of education for our students, and they are also opportunities for us to re-examine our approaches to teaching and learning. In this Lunchtime Seminar, we will showcase a variety of innovative approaches to integrating OER materials into college classrooms.
Learning at the Museum across Disciplines
Hunter’s central location and partnerships with cultural institutions in the city greatly facilitate learning opportunities at the museum. This lunchtime seminar addresses the pedagogical advantages and challenges of designing meaningful and effective activities at the museum, during or outside class time. We will hear how Hunter instructors from a variety of disciplines — archeology, literature, mathematics, language, among others — have incorporated museum activities into their courses and curriculum.
