Fall 2019 Events

Center for Faculty and Curricular Development

CFCD continues to support and advocate for the professional development and pedagogical initiatives of the faculty throughout the academic career. We are available for class visits, and small group or individual consultation. Please welcome Justin Danier-Best (jdainerbest@bard.edu) as the newest CFCD Faculty Fellow, joining Faculty Fellow, Laura Kunreuther (kunreuth@bard.edu), and CFCD co-directors Éric Trudel (trudel@bard.edu) and Emily McLaughlin (mclaughl@bard.edu).
