Teaching@York Peek Week November 12-16, 2018
What is it?
CTLET's Teaching@York Peek Week initiative gives faculty the opportunity to attend colleagues’ classes--face-to-face or online-- and to experience the joy of learning or to share the joy of teaching. Tuition-free!
I thought that this experience was wonderfully inspiring. I particularly enjoyed the exercise of a close, critical analysis of piece of popular culture to augment the larger in-class lecture on Black feminism. I hope that the guests in my class felt the same way. I hope that Peek Week becomes a tradition at York College and I hope that when I retire, I can tell my younger colleagues that I was there at its inception!

I was very grateful to have the opportunity to visit someone's classroom, observe an experienced lecturer at work, and think this a brilliant initiative! Many thanks to all of the willing participants who opened their classrooms up for visits. I sat in on a lecture on Mendelian Genetics offered by Dr. Arsov and was treated to an accessible introduction to the basic tenets of inheritance based on Gregor Mendel's very methodical experiments. It was a welcome opportunity to reflect on teaching strategies and I am very happy to have had the opportunity to participate. Many thanks for organizing this and for following-up!
