March 10: Open Session on Student-Centered Pedagogy (Livestreamed!)
Tuesday, March 10, 2015 - 4:15pm to 6:15pm

 

Join us March 10 for Student-Centered Pedagogy: a workshop for innovative classroom practices focusing on collaboration, crowdsourcing, and experiential learning. What does peer learning look like across disciplines? What are the risks and rewards of a student-centered classroom? Join the Futures Initiative seminar, “Mapping the Futures of Higher Education” and members of the student-centered pedagogy group for a workshop on bringing peer learning techniques into the classroom. This participatory workshop will take place on March 10 from 4:15-6:15 in Room 9206 at the Graduate Center, CUNY and will be live-streamed here: http://bit.ly/FuturesED-live
