The annual Winter Convocation is an opportunity for all BMCC faculty and staff to gather to discuss teaching and learning in support of student success in and out of the classroom.
Winter Convocation will take place on Wednesday, January 22, 2020 at 199 Chambers Street.
The theme is Culturally Responsive and Sustaining Engagement.
According to the BMCC Designing for Success Pedagogy group (2018-19), “the Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Engagement (CRSE) framework is intended to help BMCC faculty and staff create a welcoming learning environment that:
- affirms and values cultural diversity (i.e., race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, ability, religion, social class, nationality, and language), and
- identifies and leverages students’ experiences and background as assets and resources, and not as “deficiencies to overcome” (Paris & Alim, 2014, p. 87).
See the full document here: CRP Statement and strategies 4-12-19.
All faculty and staff are invited and welcome.
