The TLC’s focus is on pedagogy. We want to provide best practices and to be a responsible voice for those instructors looking for advice about how to handle their classroom and course. The Teaching and Learning Center fosters a culture of collaborative learning, pedagogical inquiry, and community engagement. Through workshops, seminars, and consultations, we encourage culturally sensitive, community-engaged, project-based learning in every discipline.  We support the pedagogic use of CUNY academic technology, including the Academic CommonsOffice 365Dropbox, and Blackboard. We collaborate with the campus leaders of the Open Educational Resources initiative and the Campus Engagement Network

The Teaching and Learning Center staff provides pedagogical, Blackboard Help, OER, and Academic Commons support and Other Instructional Technologies to CCNY faculty by conducting individual training sessions and workshops through Zoom or email correspondence. We do not currently offer in-person appointments. CCNY instructors are responsible for building and managing their Blackboard course sites. TLC staff can show you how to build the site, but cannot build the site for you. The TLC staff aims to help instructors use technology to achieve their pedagogical aims. Instructors are limited to two, non-consecutive appointments per week, eight appointments per semester. TLC consultants serve as instructors and in other student support roles on campus. If we are unable to answer a question during a session, we will research the issue and get back to you as soon as possible. 

Individual appointments should be scheduled ahead of time using the booking system available on the TLC website.
