Dear Commons Community,
Last April, as part of the professional development activities in our Ph.D. Program in Urban Education here at the CUNY Graduate Center, we held a “career night” discussion between students and faculty on the topic of teaching in the modern university. A range of topics including teaching adults, use of technology, applying for positions, and preparing for tenure were discussed. The editing of the video (two hours) from this discussion was just finished and is now available on youtube. Doctoral students who are preparing to enter the job market or adjuncting for the first time, might find some of the shared experiences and insights helpful. My appreciation to Jennifer Stoops, Kylah Torre, Amanda Matles, and Stephanie Anderson for their assistance with the production of this video.
