Pedagogy Breakfasts

Please join the Center for Writing for breakfast and conversation about teaching and learning on Wednesday, October 20. This event will be held on the Alumni Terrace of 41 Cooper Square, 8th Floor.
This is a chance for Cooper faculty from the three schools and HSS to come together and talk about the challenges, triumphs, and questions that have arisen around teaching so far this year. We can commiserate, share tools and strategies, and learn from each other's pedagogical approaches.
If you already attended the first Pedagogy Breakfast earlier this month, you are welcome to come to this event as well. You may stop by anytime between 9 and 11 and stay as long as you like. Simple breakfast foods and coffee will be served. Note that the event is outside and masks are optional.
If you'd like to join us for one or both events, please RSVP to Pam Newton at by Sunday, October 10, and let us know about any food restrictions. 

Located at 41 Cooper Square, on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
