The 21st Annual CUNY IT Conference theme was “The Power and Perils of Scripting.” It took place in person on December 1 & 2, 2022 at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
Prior to the pandemic, the Baruch Center for Teaching and Learning had a guide for students that focused on administrative topics and assumed a physical campus where students could access resources and community. By Spring 2021, it was clear that a new script was needed.
This presentation shares the revised resource, which infuses a “whole self” approach to thinking about educational life. Informed by the experiences of pandemic teaching and learning and our COVID-19 Student Experience Survey, this guide includes strategies for students to chart their educational paths, plan out their study, and maximize their time in college (whether on or off campus). It’s grounded in successful methods its authors (CTL staff and instructors at CUNY) witnessed students use to stay on top of their classes, and fosters habits of mind and body that make the learning process more fulfilling. The guide is structured to address key moments across a semester and best practices to foster a rewarding learning experience and healthy work/life balance. An evolving document, it is offered as an open educational resource (OER), reuse-able or remix-able to a range of schools’ teaching and institutional contexts.
