Faculty Workshops

Active Learning / Student-Centered Learning

I have developed and facilitated a series of active (or student-centered learning) workshops for faculty across a variety of disciplines, as well as for faculty within specific disciplines. Below, you will find a sample of some of the workshop materials.

Active Learning Strategies Repository

Alongside Laurie Hurson, I developed the Active Learning Strategies repository for faculty. This site gives suggestions for how to incorporate active, student-centered learning into classes across the disciplines and also features the final projects of faculty enrolled in the Baruch College Active Learning Summer Seminar.  I also facilitated an active learning seminar for faculty, but the course site is private. For more information, please contact me: I’m happy to share my materials!

Hybrid Seminar

As a Digital Pedagogy Specialist at Baruch College between November 2015-August 2019, I co-facilitated a seminar for interdisciplinary faculty who were interested in hybridizing a face-to-face class. Here are the course sites for the Summer 2019 cohort and the Spring 2019 cohort, where you can see the curriculum, assignments, and resources.

Contract Grading

In January 2019, I presented “Collaborative, Contract, and ‘Alternative’ Grading Methods” to the Teaching and Learning Collaboratory at Macaulay Honors College. Here are the slides from the presentation.

In August 2016, I presented “Grades: What Are They Good For? Contract Grading Strategies for Teachers of Writing” to new and returning graduate teachers of writing and literature at The Graduate Center, CUNY. Here are the contract grading session handouts; and the student self-assessment handout.

Here is my own (always evolving!) grading contract.

Multimodal Composing

In collaboration with Tamara Gubernat and Laurie Hurson, I presented “Remixing the Final Assignment”, an interdisciplinary workshop for faculty, at Baruch College in May 2018. Here are the slides.
