CTL Conversations: “Developing Assignments that Incorporate Current Events”
Wednesday, December 7, 4pm-5pm, NVC 14-267
Come together to brainstorm and share how you can develop meaningful assignments that relate your discipline to current events and promote the learning goals of your course.
New - Can’t join in person but would like to participate? You are welcome to join our experiment of remotely listening in via WebEx. Email Allison.Lehr-Samuels@baruch.cuny.edu to learn more.
CTL Conversations is a time for faculty to come together to informally workshop, brainstorm and discuss topics related to their teaching. Each week we’ll focus on a new topic and will invite members of the Baruch community who have expertise in the topic to be on hand, too. Faculty are welcome to drop in and leave at any point during the session. Refreshments available.
