The Work Matters

A Guide for New Faculty Teaching at City Tech

PLACE-BASED NOT PLACE-BOUND

Situated in our vibrant Brooklyn waterfront community at the heart of New York City and the mouth of its great harbor, education at City Tech is place-based but not place-bound. Our faculty and students, representing many origins and dozens of languages, bring the world to us, face to face, every day. At the same time, the disciplines they study, the professions and creative arts they practice, and the ever-growing battery of high-tech tools they employ enable and foster explorations and connections that are truly global.

Just because we are face to face, does that mean I see you as you are, or that you see me? How does a diverse collection of people become a diverse community of learners? How do we provide all students who have talent and interest with the opportunity to master the tools of science? And, finally, the questions Paul King asks: amid the social complexities and the plethora of new tools, what is an effective teacher? How does a teacher engage and nurture students, one by one?
