Philosophy Outreach

As an alternative to the malnourished conception of education that increasingly permeates our schools, the Columbia University Philosophy Outreach aims to provide an enriching educational experience for New York City students and court-involved youth. The Philosophy Outreach- a vital student-run partnership between the Philosophy and Education department at TC and the Philosophy department at GSAS-is predicated on the conviction that engagement with philosophy can foster intellectual curiosity. Dialogue -the language of philosophy – is our pedagogical approach.  At the heart of our efforts, we aim to encourage something profound but shockingly accessible – the thinking individual. To follow their work, and learn how you can support their effort, please visit their blog.

Professor Emerita Maxine Greene has been a the forefront of educational philosophy for almost half a century as a teacher, lecturer and author. A beloved Teachers College faculty member since 1965, her life has been one of encouraging deep engagement in the world, which resonates through all we do here at Teachers College.

The Maxine Greene Society brings together Teachers College’s most loyal alumni and friends who have given their consistent support through an Annual Fund gift every year for five years or more. These consecutive gifts, at any level, are a mainstay of our operating budget and allow the College to keep pioneering bold new ideas in human development and learning.

Maxine Greene's signature philosophy has been "imagining things as if they could be otherwise." With your help every year, Teachers College can continue to do this every day with a robust Annual Fund to provide support wherever the College it needs it most.

As we begin our 2013-14 academic year, we hope you will take the first step in becoming a member of the Maxine Greene Society today with a first time gift. Join our more than 1700 alumni and friends who consistently support the TC Fund as members of the Maxine Greene Society. Give today.

TC Week
TC Week was a success, and we are so happy to have our alumni, students, faculty and staff come together to continue to celebrate our 125th TCWayAnniversary.

We kicked off the week with the co-naming of 120th Street. President Fuhrman, said from atop a double decker bus that served as a stage, “The new sign co-naming our street says it all: Teachers College Way. So many big thinkers and doers have walked this street, and we all walk in their footsteps. And now we’re all working together with our neighbors toward a brighter future. And that really is the TC way.”

TCWeekLater that day, sporting her “TC” baseball jersey, President Fuhrman literally took a festive group of TC students, alumni, faculty, and staff out to the old ball game at Yankee Stadium.

The TC Community also participated in that most primal of all Gotham rituals: getting on camera at The Today Show. Armed with TC signs, banners and pom-poms and wearing white “TC Week” t-shirts, the students – led by Bobby Cox, the TConTodaynew TC Student Senate President, and Tom Rock, Executive Director of Enrollment Services – were on a mission to spread the word about TC’s 125th anniversary celebration

Upcoming Alumni Events

September

September 10-13 - Mini Moments with Big Thinkers featuring A. Lin Goodwin
As the school year gets underway, it's worth asking: why do we expect new teachers to teach like veterans? Holding new doctors or lawyers to such a standard would be absurd. In this week's installment of Mini-Moments with Big Thinkers, Lin Goodwin argues for broader adoption of the medical residency-style teacher prep program she has created at Teachers College.

"Mini Moments with Big thinkers" is a series of two-minute video segments that will feature prominent TC faculty, faculty emeriti, alumni, administrators, and others discussing groundbreaking ideas, research and initiatives born at the College over the past 50 years. Visit www.tc.edu/bigthinkers.

September 19 - Advanced Organizational Development: Guiding Organizations through Permanent Whitewater
Classic approaches to change management were designed over fifty years ago to manage one change at a time, in a linear fashion. In case you missed it, that's not the world we live in today. Even John Kotter, author of one of the most widely used change models in existence, says that it's time to throw our old-fashioned linear models out the window. What we need is an approach to change that lets us deal with multiple changes simultaneously, on a continuous basis. The change-learning spiral that you will learn about in this experiential 1-day workshop is designed to do just that. Faculty: William Pasmore, Ph.D.
Time: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location: Teachers College
For more information or to register, please visit www.tc.columbia.edu/ce/advanced. To commemorate our 125th anniversary, we are offering a 12.5% discount. Use discount code TC125 when you register.


September 25 - Salute to TC’s Impact on Psychology: A tribute to Albert Ellis and our Psychology Luminaries
Teachers College has been a place for psychological exploration and cognitive studies for most of our 125 year history – and as such has been the breeding ground for many luminaries who have shaped the modern field of psychology into what it is today. This September marks the birth centennial of one such notable: Albert Ellis. After studying at TC, Ellis went on to become the father of cognitive-behavioral therapy and founder of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), discovering that people’s beliefs strongly affected their emotional functioning. By the time he passed at age 93, Ellis had become considered by some as more influential than Freud. This evening will be a tribute to his impact in the field of psychology, as well as an opportunity for Teachers College to recognize the other luminaries as part of our 125th anniversary celebration. Provost Tom James and TC Clinical and Counseling Psychology faculty will join his wife, Dr. Debbie Joffe Ellis, who also worked alongside Ellis for many years, in this special celebration. A “birthday” reception will follow in Everett Lounge.

Location: Teachers College, Milbank Chapel

September 26 - Is Education Possible Today? - A Lecture by David Hansen
David Hansen’s Weinberg lecture will pose the question whether education is possible today. He will begin by addressing three prevalent responses to the question: (1) that it is obviously possible since we can see all around us teachers and students working in classrooms, (2) that it is obviously not possible because the educational system has been subverted to serve the economic ends of a global capitalist order, and (3) that education remains possible because of the inextinguishable human quest for meaning even in the face of unjust societal conditions. Hansen will argue that while there is evidence to support the three responses, they all in effect dismiss the question of education’s possibility and thus undermine its authentic enactment. Hansen will suggest that the question of education is the one question we need to keep open in order to ensure the continuation of education itself.
Time: 5:30 pm
Location: Grace Dodge Hall Room 179, Teachers College
