Resilient teaching responds to the changing contexts in which learning takes place and incorporates approaches to course design that consider the needs of students, evidence-based practices, and asset-based pedagogies (including trauma-informed pedagogy, culturally sustaining pedagogy, and universal design for learning). Resilient teaching also prioritizes pedagogical choices that begin with our desired learning outcomes and then lead us to choices about technology and tools.
During Summer 2020, CETLS collaborated with jean amaral (Library) and John Beaumont (Academic Literacy and Linguistics and Teaching Collaboratory) to offer the workshop Resilient Teaching: Preparation for Online and Remote Instruction. The workshop used a flipped, hybrid approach and modeled resilient pedagogy. BMCC faculty can self-enroll in the workshop on Blackboard (you must be logged in on Blackboard for this link to work). We are currently in the process of moving the workshop resources to the BMCC OpenLab in order to make them more broadly available.
The Resilient Teaching team is continuing to offer programming that creates spaces for faculty to come together and share their experiences with remote teaching and learning. We’ll continue to host two event series – Community Share and Care and the Online Teaching Exchange – as well as monthly Zoom happy hours. We look forward to seeing you at these events!
