Pedagogy of Kindness Discussion Series: Call for Presenters

May 1, 2022 All day

My name is Josh and I work in the Center for Teaching and Learning at Queens College. One of the many exciting projects that we put out during the pandemic is the Pedagogy of Kindness (PoK) discussion series. For the third iteration of PoK, I am thrilled to announce that we are expanding beyond our home campus and inviting faculty from around CUNY to speak as either solo presenters or be part of a panel, depending on the topic.

The Pedagogy of Kindness is an instruction style that is rooted in the care of the classroom, students, and of the educator. In the past, we have had a combination of both panels and individual faculty presenters to discuss various topics, tools, instruction styles, and so forth, that lend kindness and thoughtfulness to the classroom setting. Previous discussions have included Gamifying Multilingualism; Mindfulness in the Classroom; Trauma-Informed Teaching; Alternative Assessment Panel; Inclusivity, Engagement, and Neurodivergence; and more.

Because we are taking PoK CUNY-wide, I wanted to see if there were any faculty in your schools that you could recommend or have shown interest in being presenters or panelists for sessions that focus on various aspects of creating a kinder classroom environment. Additionally, linked here is a form for a call for presenters.
