Most adjuncts enter the classroom without any formal teaching or pedagogical training. To begin addressing this problem, a group of former public school teachers, experienced graduate student adjuncts, and concerned full-time faculty have designed a one-day intensive pedagogy workshop, open to all GC students.

The workshop will address multiple teaching strategies and pedagogy techniques (See schedule below). In addition to the one-day workshop we will also hold shorter monthly meetings where adjuncts will have an opportunity to discuss questions, frustrations, successes, etc. As part of the training, graduate students will be provided with materials and resources to support their teaching and a website is being constructed as an additional resource for adjuncts to utilize. Through this website, graduate students will be able to share resources, syllabi, lessons, assignments, etc.

The conference was held with great success on Friday, March 7th 2014 @ 9:00 AM at the Graduate Center. Join us again next year for Purposeful Pedagogy 2015.
