Faculty Development, as well as Pedagogical Strategies, Workshops for the fall 2015, summer 2016, and fall 2016 cohorts (Conference/Institute/Seminar)
Title: Faculty Development, as well as Pedagogical Strategies, Workshops for the fall 2015, summer 2016, and fall 2016 cohorts
Abstract: The project spearheaded faculty development spaces within which presentations from, and discussions with, NYU faculty prompted BMCC faculty to disseminate knowledge, explore ideas on best (classroom) practices, and develop their own thoughts and approaches regarding global issues, thus refining the latters' courses to create a more integrated learning experience for students. Subsequent monthly Pedagogical Strategies workshops, each focused on one competency, and to which all faculty and administrators of the BMCC academic community were invited, brought together workshop participants to provide “status reports” regarding the curricula changes they implemented concerning the particular global competencies they chose to nurture
Date Range: Fall 2015 - Spring 2017
