The Teaching and Learning Center at John Jay College of Criminal Justice (TLC) provides mentoring, training, and resources to support effective and just teaching and learning in higher education. In these efforts, the TLC partners with multiple programs and departments across the College, including full and part-time faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, staff, and administrators.
Please explore the teaching resources that are offered on this website. Supporting, challenging, and extending information on common teaching approaches and strategies, we include several pages that focus on pedagogies supporting the discussion of anti-racism inside and outside of formal teaching environments. Throughout the site, we include and emphasize resources on anti-racism pedagogies to amplify the voices of those seeking justice through transforming education.
From Criminal Justice to English, from the Humanities to STEM, John Jay’s departments and courses explicitly and implicitly address the issues of racial inequality, racism, injustice and discrimination. At John Jay College Teaching and Learning Center, we urge our community to embrace and engage in social justice education wherein faculty and students are able to intervene, discuss and understand the fight for justice and the promotion of equity for all people of color and all historically oppressed identities.
