December 7, 2020

Winter 2021 Hunter/BMCC Faculty Seminar Series  

Identity and Purpose: Student Lived Experiences in the Classroom

Sponsored by – Hunter College AANAPISI Project (HCAP), BMCC’s Center for Ethnic Studies (CES) and Center for Excellence in Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship (CETLS), and Hunter College’s Academic Center for Excellence in Research and Teaching (ACERT).

Kickoff: Tuesday 12/15, 12pm – 1pm

Seminar Sessions: Thursdays in January: 1/7, 1/14, 1/21, & 1/28, from 1pm – 3:30pm.


Description: We invite Hunter and BMCC adjunct and full-time instructors from all disciplines to participate in a January online seminar series. The series will focus on how to integrate student racial and cultural identities and educational motivations into our online teaching practice. Through guided discussions, guest speakers, and breakout rooms, participants will learn, discuss, and reflect on their students’ learning experiences and then create and share a teaching innovation (e.g. class activity, assignment/project, teaching tool, etc.) for a course they plan to teach in spring 2021 or later. Participants who attend all sessions and complete a teaching innovation for a future course will receive a stipend of $500.


Application: http://bit.ly/hcapbmcc21

Deadline: Monday, 12/7 or until all spots are filled.


We will accept up to 25 participants for this seminar and will keep a waitlist. All applicants should demonstrate an interest in the themes of identity and race as they apply to teaching. We will be offering similar opportunities in the future as part of a 5-year grant.
