Join the CUNY Humanities Alliance for a discussion about community college student-centered teaching and learning in the humanities and social sciences! In this roundtable discussion, LaGuardia Community College Faculty Mentors and Graduate Teaching Fellows from The Graduate Center will discuss their experiences in the CUNY Humanities Alliance program. Their discussion will highlight new insights that resulted from their work with their mentors and mentees, and how their experience in the CUNY Humanities Alliance program helped them develop professionally.

The discussion will address questions such as:
  • What new insights were gained as a result of your work with your mentee or mentor? What kinds of connections have been forged between community college faculty, doctoral students, and undergraduates in the first two years of this program?
  • What does it mean to teach the humanities at a community college? How do doctoral students translate their specialized research into their teaching of introductory and general education courses? In recalling your development as a lecturer/instructor, what do you think is the greatest benefit this experience provided you as a mentor or a mentee?
  • What are the lessons of this program so far for doctoral education and the future of the professoriate, at the Graduate Center and beyond?
