Asian American Students in the City: Considerations for the CUNY Classroom and Beyond (online)
This January 2024, we invite BMCC and Hunter Faculty to participate in an intermediate-level online seminar series focused on Asian American students’ sense of purpose and belonging, and racial/cultural experiences throughout college. Here we will be centering Asian American ethnic and immigrant experiences, Asian American mental health and wellness, pedagogical interventions for centering purpose and classroom engagement as informed by Asian American Studies, and other inclusive teaching practices. Participants will learn, discuss, reflect and apply workshop themes to teaching enhancements for their future courses.
Open to all former FSS participants, as well as BMCC and Hunter part-time/adjunct and full-time instructors (from all disciplines) with previous faculty development program experience exploring themes of racial justice in the classroom.
