Transformative Learning in the Humanities

October 21, 2020 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

Learn more about the new Transformative Learning in the Humanities (TLH) project, funded by a $2 million grant from the Mellon Foundation. TLH is an innovative new faculty training initiative that will help the University reimagine the teaching of humanities in more urgent, relevant ways designed to contribute to student success and to a more equitable society.  TLH will engage humanities faculty who are interested in making their classes more participatory by capitalizing on the rich diversity and vast talent of CUNY students, with the ultimate goal of preparing students for a world that requires collaboration, communication, analytical reading and cross-cultural thinking.  The webinar will feature

  • José Luis Cruz, CUNY Executive Vice Chancellor and University Provost
  • Distinguished Professor Cathy Davidson, TLH Co-Director, founder of the CUNY Futures Initiative and Co-Founder of HASTAC (Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory)
  • Professor Shelly Eversley, TLH Co-Director and Provost’s Faculty Fellow and Interim Chair, Department of Black and Latinx Studies, Baruch College
