Save the Date: Responsibility for Learning Workshops for Fall 2014


This fall, the Teaching & Learning Commons will offer a six-part workshop series focused on the question, “How do we inspire and share responsibility for learning?” Two books, Thinking through Quality Questioning and Teaching with Your Mouth Shut, will help guide us through an inquiry-based approach to this teaching challenge.


The workshops will meet Fridays, from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. and will include hands-on practice with teaching strategies as well as time for small group discussion and individual reflection.


All instructional staff are welcome: however, each workshop will be limited to 25 participants in order to provide sufficient time and attention for discussions and feedback. Calls for RSVPs will be circulated before each workshop through the faculty listserv and the CUNY Academic Commons.


Workshop dates and times:


Friday, September 12, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Friday, October 10, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Friday, October 24, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Friday, November 7, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Friday, November 21, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Friday, December 19, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
