Guided Explorations
Teaching on the CUNY Academic Commons
Presenter(s): Jeff Allred (English), Julie Van Peteghem (Romance Languages)

The CUNY Academic Commons has become a robust and flexible platform: a place for discussion, faculty collaboration, professional networking, private and public writing, communicating with your students, and storing your course materials. In recent semesters, some CUNY instructors have begun using the Commons as the learning management system (LMS) in their courses as an open education alternative to Blackboard. If you’re interested in hosting your course on the Commons next semester or simply want to learn more about the platform, please join us for an initial 2-hour guided exploration on Wednesday, January 9, 12-2pm.

Assessment Breakfasts
Learning and Assessment in Administrative and Educational Support Units (Encore)
Presenter(s): Joel Bloom (Assessment), Brian Buckwald (Student Affairs)

Units outside of academic programs are increasingly called upon to assess their practices, with added specific emphasis on those units who support and further student learning and development outcomes.  In this workshop the presenters will help attendees recognize what and where student learning occurs in such units and recommended resources to help support an evidence-based approach and reaccreditation efforts.  The workshop is open to all interested but particularly directed at staff in administrative and educational support units. Please bring your unit mission statements, goals, and – if you have them already – your learning outcomes. [Details...]

Chanin (B126 HW)
Assessment Breakfasts While academic departments and programs at Hunter College have been conducting assessment of student learning outcomes (SLOs) in their undergraduate programs for some time, assessment of learning outcomes within our graduate programs is far less widespread as well as less developed. The co-presenters will begin with some background on assessment of student learning, and will discuss similarities and differences between SLOs – and SLO assessment – between graduate and undergraduate programs. The workshop will include an interactive activity in which participants work together to review their current graduate outcomes and assessment plans or activities, and help identify ways in which they can be enhanced or improved. The workshop is open to all interested but particularly directed at assessment coordinators, chairs, and faculty in departments with graduate programs. [Details...]

Lunchtime Seminars
Small Teaching Part II: Lightning Talks on Teaching and Learning
Presenter(s): Acert Steering Committee and Other Faculty and Staff Volunteers

As introduced at the first Lunchtime Seminar on October 2nd, James Lang’s 2016 book Small Teaching is based on the idea that simple, small changes to our classroom practices and course designs could 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 Lang's ideas or any other brief topic relevant to teaching at Hunter. The talks will be short, lightning talks (3 minutes each) which will allow presenters and participants plenty of time to discuss other ideas that they can try in their courses today, tomorrow, or next semester.
