Informal discussions are scheduled on Mondays and Wednesdays at lunch time in the CTC. If you want to schedule a Roundtable on any topic having to do with teaching, contact us at CTCR@tc3.edu. Here are our upcoming events:
Tony DeFranco and Lisa Ford Monday, 10/19
SafeAssign is plagiarism teaching and detection software, an alternative to Turnitin.com. Tony and Lisa will give you a demo and answer questions. Come and see what you think.
Witnessing for Social Justice: My time in Israel/Palestine
Amber Gilewski Wednesday, 10/28
Hear about Amber's recent trip, including some of her observations about education in a conflict zone.
The CTC Board also sponsors three regaular monthly Roundtables.
Get together with other teachers to talk about successful teaching strategies. Next get-together: Wed. 10/21.
Adjuncts Chat With the Dean
An opportunity for adjunct faculty to ask questions and get information from the Dean of Instruction. Next get-together is Breakfast with the Dean at a special day and time: Tuesday, 11/10 from 8:30-9:20. We thought this would be a nice opportunity for adjunct faculty who aren't normally on campus on Monday and Wednesday.
Reading & Discussion Group
Meets at noon on the first Wednesday of the month to discuss selected readings about pedagogy and social issues in education. This semester we are reading Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates, discussing one section each month:
10/7 – PART 1. BETWEEN THE WORLD AND ME
11/4 – PART 2. THE SOOTY DETAILS OF THE SCENE
12/2 – PART 3. A GRASSY CLEARING
It is a deeply personal and compelling book. The Library has six nook copies and one print copy.
We are also continuing to gather examples of the small ways that we see reparations in our daily lives – people trying to make it right when they/we have caused injury to another.
Dates for upcoming Roundtables are posted on this page. Faculty and adjunct faculty are also notified by e-mail.
