Film and Media Studies Faculty Discussion

July 31 2020

From 11:00 am until noon


The New York Six invites film and media studies faculty to join facilitators Lisa Patti (Hobart and William Smith Colleges) and Ani Maitra (Colgate University) for a discussion about teaching under pandemic conditions, especially remote teaching.

  1. Establish connections among film and media studies faculty at our NY6 institutions.
  2. Share pedagogical strategies to improve our students’ active engagement, for now and for the future.
  3. Start compiling resources and building an NY6 support system for the upcoming academic year.

This will be an open discussion among the participants. No preparation is required.  We may have breakout sessions, based on the responses offered by the participants. We will share ideas and resources (through collaborative notetaking), and we will use this meeting as a building block for NY6 collaborations for all interested participants.


Lisa Patti, Associate Professor of Media and Society, Hobart and William Smith Colleges
