LaGuardia Community College has been a partner with the Graduate Center on the CUNY Humanities Alliance since 2016. For more information about our work together in the first phase, please read here.
At LaGuardia, 2022-2023 fellows may be assigned to one of two projects: ePortfolio or Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.
Fellows work closely with faculty leaders to help design faculty and student ePortfolio showcases, workshops, and co-curricular activities, and help facilitate the use of ePortfolio in career and transfer fairs for students majoring in programs in Humanities and Liberal Arts. Fellows may also help conduct student and faculty focus groups to help inform a full view of LaGuardia’s wide-ranging ePortfolio practice. Fellows will be introduced to a variety of educational High Impact Practices by developing a network of faculty and staff partners across the college, including the Center for Teaching & Learning’s (CTL) instructional design and digital learning specialists, advisement services staff, peer mentoring program leaders, and multidisciplinary faculty.
The Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL)
Working with CTL staff and faculty, fellows may help design and support the next iteration of LaGuardia’s “Carnegie Seminar on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning,” focused on the Humanities. SoTL encompasses contextualized classroom inquiry and knowledge creation, based on Ernest Boyer’s Scholarship Reconsidered (1990). Faculty in the seminar develop a scholarly paper for internal publication in In Transit: LaGuardia’s Journal on Teaching and Learning based on research projects undertaken in the seminar. Fellows may participate in all aspects of seminar design and implementation, as well as the journal publication slated for Spring 2024. Past In Transitjournals have focused on the first year experience, STEM education, and incarceration, among other themes.
