From June 5th through the 9th, the Bridges Across Eastern Queens team—as well as Queens College President Felix Rodríguez and several guest speakers—convened at the President’s Residence in Douglaston, Queens for a week of conversation, planning, and professional development supplemented by online activities.
Attendees discussed how to assess the state of student knowledge in order to decide how best to build on it, they compared notes on course climate and its effects, they discussed the implementation of tools like exam wrappers, and they made decisions on how to enrich target and landing courses in the coming semester.
Thank you to everyone who came out for sharing your pedagogical insights! We look forward to working with you in the coming semester on this important project.
