Faculty Dining Room
Special Events In this ACERT / Sociology Department Special Event, Dr. Sara Goldrick-Rab will present her innovative and critical work on the role of higher education in the United States. Professor Goldrick-Rab will argue that one of the most sustained and vigorous public debates today is about the value—and, crucially, the price—of college. In this talk, Dr. Goldrick-Rab will communicate a transformational vision for higher education in America that stresses affordability and access for all, especially lower- to middle-income students and first generation college students. She will give the audience a better understanding of the complexity and the urgency of the situation and inspire us with a sense of a need for action. [Details...]

Through our reading and discussion of her work, we will analyze her transformational vision for higher education in America, and draw lessons for how we support students at Hunter and address issues such as homelessness and food insecurity in our work as teachers and administrators.

Special Events
Inclusive Classroom: Tools, Rights and Freedom
Presenter(s): Joseph Viteritti (Urban Policy and Planning), Vicki Lens (Social Work), Robyn Brown-Manning (Social Work)

There is a growing debate among those in and outside the academy over whether the principles of free expression are at risk by practices such as trigger warning and safe spaces. A recently signed Executive Order directs the Department of Education and other government agencies to withhold funds from colleges that limit or restrict free expression. This panel will discuss the inclusive classroom and whether the use of tools like trigger warnings and safe spaces help preserve free expression and the rights of students and faculty in the classroom.

Lunchtime Seminars
Lightning Talks on Teaching and Learning
Presenter(s): ACERT Steering Committee and Other Faculty and Staff Volunteers

As introduced in James Lang’s 2016 book Small Teaching, simple, small changes to our classroom practices and course designs can make large, positive differences in student achievement and overall teaching effectiveness. After a brief summary of Lang’s book and his blog posts in The Chronicle of Higher Education, volunteers will present a variety of short talks about teaching and learning based on any brief topic relevant to teaching at Hunter. The talks will be short, lightning talks (3 minutes each; 3 PPT slide limit) which will allow presenters and participants plenty of time to discuss ideas that they can try in their courses today, tomorrow, or next semester.

Adjunct Development on a Budget
Presenter(s): Ronnie Ancona (Classics); Leigh Jones (English); Tatyana Khodorovskiy (Math and Statistics); Wendy Hayden (English); Mary Roldan (History)

Given CUNY’s heavy reliance on poorly-compensated adjuncts and graduate students, many departments recognize the need to provide these faculty members with effective professional development and support. This is challenging given adjuncts’ full and diverse schedules and is especially difficult in the current budget climate. Course coordinators and chairs from various departments will present on how they handle this issue given the strict financial and time constraints. [Details...]

Place-Based Pedagogy in NYC: The City as a Classroom
Presenter(s): Biao Jiang (Hostos); Francisco Fernandez (Hostos); Nora Almeida (City Tech); Jason Montgomery (City Tech); Charles Tien (Political Science)

At Hunter, along with other NYC-based educators, we often aspire to “use the city as a classroom.” The idea has obvious appeal to students, professors, and administrators alike. New York City’s museums, libraries, and performance spaces offer readymade settings for learning. But the idea of moving pedagogy “outside of the classroom” promises something more - an engagement with the material, cultural, and social landscape that exists beyond the city’s educational and cultural institutions. What are the opportunities afforded by this move? What are the challenges it entails? Professors from a variety of disciplines will discuss their experiences with place-based teaching in the city, from a pedagogical and practical / logistical standpoint. [Details...]
