The CUNY Graduate Center’s Teaching and Learning Center invites applications for TLC Fellowships for the 2017-18 academic year. TLC Fellows support CUNY Graduate Center students who are teaching across CUNY by consulting with graduate instructors during office hours, developing workshops and focused inquiry groups, producing guides for the Center’s web site, and contributing to a range of special projects. During the 2016-17 academic year, TLC fellows worked on projects related to educational technology, writing pedagogy, working with diverse student populations, teaching as an international student, data security, managing nerves in the classroom, and other topics. During the 2017-18 academic year, these themes will continue, and will expand to include quantitative and scientific instructional methodologies and a focus on accessibility in the college classroom.
This is a terrific opportunity to join a team of committed educators who are thinking through what support for graduate student teachers can and should look like, specifically in the context of the nation’s largest, urban, public university.
GC TLC Fellows report to the director of the Teaching and Learning Center, and will be expected to work both independently and in collaboration with other TLC fellows and the assistant director. Ideal candidates will be deeply engaged with the City University of New York, and will be experienced college teachers familiar with current pedagogical conversations. Strong writing, digital, and presentational skills are required, as is current enrollment in a doctoral program at the Graduate Center. Former CUNY Writing and Quantitative Reasoning Fellows are encouraged to apply.
