Faculty Coffee & Conversations 2
Success Stories
Wednesday, November 11, 2015
3:30 pm, Fine Art Gallery


Co-Sponsors:
The Executive Committee of the General Faculty
The Teaching and Learning Commons (TLC)
The Lehman College Chapter of the Professional Staff Congress (PSC/CUNY)


Description:
This year’s Faculty Coffee & Conversations series focuses on sharing the best of our teaching practices with each other. October’s conversation drew 27 faculty participants who discussed their strategies for engaging students in learning.


For our second conversation this fall, please join us in sharing teaching success stories. Have you used a new pedagogical technique, assignment, lecture, demonstration, or other class activity that really helped your students learn? Let’s share those stories, talk through why they might have worked, and think about how we might adapt other’s successes in our own classrooms.


Everyone who teaches, either full- or part-time, is welcome to participate.


No presentations. No Powerpoints. Just faculty together talking about teaching and learning in a wonderful setting with refreshments provided by our co-sponsors: the Lehman College TLC and the Lehman College Chapter of the PSC.
Information about upcoming TLC programs and other faculty development opportunities will be available.


Staff are welcome: we do ask that all participants come prepared to share teaching stories and set aside business concerns for the time we are together.


Please RSVP to vincent.prohaska@lehman.cuny.edu to help with attendance estimates.

Faculty Coffee & Conversations
How Do We Engage Students in Learning?
Wednesday, October 21, 2015
3:30 pm, Fine Art Gallery


Co-Sponsors:
The Executive Committee of the General Faculty
The Teaching and Learning Commons (TLC)
The Lehman College Chapter of the Professional Staff Congress (PSC/CUNY)


Description:
How do we engage students in learning? We want students to read assignments, participate in class discussions, devote the necessary time and effort to studying and writing, make connections between classes, and reflect on what they have learned: as most of us have found, this is not easy.


In response, many of us have developed engagement strategies or techniques, for example using “clickers,” quizzes, interactive lectures, writing assignments, and/or “flipped” classrooms.


Please join us for an informal discussion to share engagement ideas and strategies. Everyone who teaches, either full- or part-time, is welcome to participate.


No presentations. No Powerpoints. Just faculty together talking about teaching and learning in a wonderful setting with refreshments provided by our co-sponsors: the Lehman College TLC and the Lehman College Chapter of the PSC.
Information about upcoming TLC programs and other faculty development opportunities will be available.


Please RSVP to vincent.prohaska@lehman.cuny.edu so we can get an idea of how many people might attend.
