Each week this summer, we'll be highlighting exciting MAP events from the last academic year. This week, CUNY Cartographer (that has a ring to it, doesn't it?) Joseph Bendana on two very practical events.
Pedagogy Workshops: Monique Whitaker's talk about pedagogy together with our roundtable discussion of the same topic offered CUNY faculty and students many practical tools for tackling the precipitous drop-off in students of color and women after introductory-level classes. The strategies and techniques presented at these events continue to be discussed and implemented in classrooms throughout CUNY.
“Applying to Graduate School” Panel Discussions: At our panel discussions about applying to graduate school several graduate students as well as Graduate Center faculty members presented a multifaceted overview of the PhD application process to CUNY undergraduates. We also held an extended discussion of the climate and struggles faced by minorities in philosophy. It was heartening to see such a diverse group of students leave the event apparently motivated to pursue philosophy in the face of so many obstacles.
