Title: Winter 2022 BMCC-Hunter ABI Faculty Seminar Series
Theme: Mental Health and Student Life: Incorporating Student Experiences in the Classroom
We invite BMCC and Hunter adjunct and full-time instructors from all disciplines to participate in a January online seminar series. The series will focus on how we can thoughtfully integrate students’ racial/cultural experiences as well as their mental health into our teaching practice. Through guided discussions, guest speakers, and breakout rooms, participants will learn, discuss, and reflect on their students’ classroom 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 2022 or later. Participants who attend all sessions and complete a teaching innovation for a future course will receive a stipend of $500.
Kickoff: Wednesday December 15, 1pm – 2:30pm
Seminar Sessions: Wednesdays in January: 1/5, 1/12, 1/19, 1/26 from 1pm – 3:30pm.
Deadline: Monday, November 8th
We will accept up to 30 participants for this seminar. 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.
