Paying the Price: College Costs, Financial Aid, and the Betrayal of the American Dream
Presenter(s): Mike Benediktsson (Sociology), David Petrain (Classical & Oriental Studies), Sarah Ward (Library), Philip Johnson (Political Science-WAC Fellow)

In preparation for our spring special event with Dr. Sara Goldrick-Rab, please join ACERT for a 3-part Teaching Scholarship Circle (TSC) where we will read and discuss selections from Goldrick-Rab's book Paying the Price: College Costs, Financial Aid, and the Betrayal of the American Dream. In her work, Goldrick-Rab argues that one of the most sustained and vigorous public debates today is about the value—and, crucially, the price—of college. 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.

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...]

Ungrading: Rethinking Assessment in the Classroom
Presenter(s): Jeff Allred (English); Allen Strouse (English); Austin Bailey (English, WAC Fellow)

A number of prominent voices in the academy have questioned not just how we grade, but why we grade altogether, arguing that our usual modes of grading send the wrong message to students and discourage deep learning. In this panel, we will hear from two English professors who have explored alternatives to traditional grading in their courses, with an overview of the topic from a third. [Details...]

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.
