Adjuncts Reimagining Digital Pedagogy without Burnout

Adjuncts Reimagining Digital Pedagogy without Burnout

Join us on October 1, 2-3pm, for our first University Worth Fighting For event of 20/21. RSVP for free to get the Zoom details prior to the event. In this interactive workshop for adjuncts and full-time faculty participants, FI Fellows Adashima Oyo and Christina Katopodis will share their discussion strategies and tools for online learning during this social crisis. These unprecedented times require innovation and social justice pedagogy amid a global pandemic, police violence, Black Lives Matter protests, an upcoming election, and more. How do we make online instruction engaging for students? How do we, as instructors, keep up our momentum and joy in teaching online? This workshop invites us all to reimagine social justice pedagogy while teaching online and to think together about how we ourselves, as educators, can remain engaged, focused, and energized during a very challenging semester.

*This workshop is designed by adjunct faculty for overworked, busy, harried adjuncts; however, all instructors are welcome. The techniques discussed will focus especially on deconstructing and inverting typically hierarchies in the classroom and the academy, discussing time management, working conditions and how to create online space where adjuncts can share their teaching strategies.

Organized by:

Christina Katopodis is a doctoral candidate in English at the Graduate Center, CUNY. She is the winner of the 2019 Diana Colbert Innovative Teaching Prize and the 2018 Dewey Digital Teaching Award.

Davidson, Katopodis is co-author of “Transform Every Classroom: A Practical Guide to Revolutionary Teaching and Learning” (Harvard UP, anticipated 2022).

Adashima Oyo is a doctoral candidate in the Social Welfare program at The Graduate Center, CUNY.
