TAs Launch Survey in Preparation for a Teach-In with GSE in January

Submitted by Staff on Mon, 12/19/2016 - 12:10

Dear Teaching Assistants,

Since the election, some instructors at Rutgers have reported teaching environments marked by uncertainty, discomfort, and, in some cases, censorship of politically-charged content. In response to these reports, and because of the reality that these political discussions in our classrooms are perhaps more urgent now than ever before, Rutgers AAUP-AFT will be holding a Teach-In for university instructors (TAs, PTL faculty, and full-time faculty) in collaboration with the Graduate School of Education. This Teach-In will be held at the GSE on Friday, January 27, from 10am-2pm.

As we plan for this Teach-In, we have created a short survey to help us fully grasp the issues that instructors are facing. Please help us out by answering a few questions around politicized discussions in your classroom. You may access the survey here: Post-election teaching issues survey

In solidarity,

TA/GA Steering Committee
