During the 2016-2017 academic year, instructors will work with QR Fellows (PhD students from the CUNY Graduate Center assigned to Queens College to support this initiative) integrating QR learning objectives and instruction into courses taught in the Spring 2017 semester.  Click here to view the workshop syllabus and important due dates.

Instructors from all departments and teaching a variety of courses are encouraged to apply for support.  We encourage applicants teaching courses not traditionally associated with QR to apply, as well as teams interested in developing a series of lessons for a common course or identified program.
