Teaching@York Peek Week November 12-16, 2018

Information about Teaching@York Peek Week third edition 11/12/18 - 11/16/18.

What is it?

CTLET's Teaching@York Peek Week initiative gives faculty the opportunity to attend colleagues’ classes--face-to-face or online-- and to experience the joy of learning or to share the joy of teaching. Tuition-free!

I thought that this experience was wonderfully inspiring.  I particularly enjoyed the exercise of a close, critical analysis of piece of popular culture to augment the larger in-class lecture on Black feminism.  I hope that the guests in my class felt the same way.  I hope that Peek Week becomes a tradition at York College and I hope that when I retire, I can tell my younger colleagues that I was there at its inception!

Dr. George White, Jr, Teaching@York Peek Week Spring 2018

I was very grateful to have the opportunity to visit someone's classroom, observe an experienced lecturer at work, and think this a brilliant initiative!  Many thanks to all of the willing participants who opened their classrooms up for visits.  I sat in on a lecture on Mendelian Genetics offered by Dr. Arsov and was treated to an accessible introduction to the basic tenets of inheritance based on Gregor Mendel's very methodical experiments.  It was a welcome opportunity to reflect on teaching strategies and I am very happy to have had the opportunity to participate.  Many thanks for organizing this and for following-up!
