Upcoming NYCLSA Virtual Event: Learning Centers Moving Forward by Looking Back: Identifying Useful Lessons for the Future from the Pandemic Era
We at NYCLSA are not letting the pandemic get in the way of offering professional development opportunities for our membership! We are hosting a virtual event on April 16, 2021 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm EST about lessons we can apply in the post-COVID world.
See below for the event summary and registration form.
Michele Doney, Director of the Student Academic Consulting Center and Immersion at Baruch College will facilitate this webinar. She will provide a case study for discussion and then manage three consecutive break-out sessions. Come learn from others and share what you have learned in terms of working with (A) staff, (B) students, and (C) campus partnerships. Together, let us pool our knowledge from lessons learned during this pandemic and consider what is useful for the coming fall to maintain, strengthen, and grow our programs.

To all of those who follow NYCLSA, please see the below message from NOSS with their tip of the week:
Dear NOSS members,
I would like to take a moment to share this great article that came across my desk, sent by Eddie Castaneda, a dear colleague at UTEP.
At UTEP, many conversations are occurring on how to help and support faculty during this unprecedented time. I assume those conversations are taking place at your institutions as well. Leaders, as well as faculty and staff, are discussing such things as the impact on the tenure and promotion process, the inability to conduct research, the effect on faculty evaluations, and concerns over hiring. Will departments still be able to hire adjuncts, post-doctoral students, or T.A.’s? These questions loom large in our windows. Through it all, though, EQUITY must guide decision-making.
I wish you all well, enjoy reading this article.
There are plenty of other tips available on NOSS's website, so please be sure to visit it for any assistance with designing your curriculum and teaching practices through these challenging and ever-changing times.
