Feedback Map for Student Support

If you are a student looking for support on pedagogy-related concerns, you can now utilize our CEP Feedback Map! This feedback map, accessible at the link below, will help guide you to Barnard resources that offer consultation, advice, and/or action in response to certain experiences you may be having, specifically within the classroom.

Thesis Guide

This guide is meant to help seniors and rising juniors of any major through any stage of the thesis-writing process.

Additionally, this guide provides insight into time management skills, research tools, and stress management strategies for alleviating stress and increasing clarity around the project.

Tackling Large Readings

As the school year is in full swing, assignments are picking up! Many Barnard students will notice that some of their assignments include readings that are upwards of 50 pages or even up to reading books. This guide can hopefully assist you as you approach your readings throughout the year

Submit work for publication at the CEP

The CEP is excited to welcome submissions for articles, guides, op eds, and personal essays to Barnard students and alums. In selecting work for publication on our website, we look for pitches and publications expressed in a lively, fluid style that focus on critical pedagogy, antiracism, experiential and experimental learning, accessibility, and/or community engaged teaching and learning.

Learning From Exam Results

Reflect on your exams and learn how to use those results to guide new approaches to studying and exam preparation. Please bring a copy of a recently returned exam. We will use these to reflect on your approach to test-taking and studying in general, and note that exam scores will not be shared.
