Oct-20-17 10:00 AM Facilitating Student Learning Beyond the Classroom: Grading Papers Learn how to engage students in their learning beyond the classroom by giving more effective feedback. Join the CTL for a two-hour workshop for graduate students focused on giving you tools to better grade papers and other written assignments. In this workshop, you will learn approaches to grading papers that help you encourage students to focus more on their improvement and less on their marks. We will discuss the use of rubrics to help streamline and standardize our grading, while helping students better understand what we value in the topic and discipline. The Essentials of Teaching and Learning workshops for graduate students are focused on giving you the tools as a new or developing instructor to better facilitate student learning and improve your teaching practice. To learn more about more opportunities for graduate students beginning to teach, visit our website at http://ctl.columbia.edu/graduate-instructors/ This workshop is facilitated by Ian Althouse, Center for Teaching and Learning.

Oct-20-17 12:30 PM Literature as an Ark: on the Stylistic and Ethical Aspects of Zoopoetics - A talk by Anne Simon, moderated by Eliza Zingesser Zoopoetics aims to highlight the plurality of stylistic, linguistic and narrative tools used by writers to express the plurality of animal activities, affects and worlds, as well as the intricacies of the interactions between humans and animals. Such an approach helps to understand that all life forms are in a relationship of dependence with an arche (Husserl)--an origin, a reason, a refuge, a dwelling, the Earth--and that animals are more stylistic or rhetorical beings than we usually think of them as being. Evolution and biomorphic logics allow us to intuitively understand other species related to us, to share many of their emotions and expressions, and to be able to account for them through specific human means, such as evocative and figurative language. The lecture will show that perspectivism, metamorphosis and hybridity are universal patterns and experiences that literature embodies in different ways. Anne Simon is a Research Director at the Centre National de la Recherche Francaise and a Member of the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (Paris), where she leads the Project "Animots"; an author of Trafics de Proust, 2016 and La rumeur des distances traversees, to be published in 2018. Her research focuses on disturbing relationships between philosophy and literature, and on zoopoetics.
