The zine is part journal entry part diagram part back-and-forth Zoom conversation between friends. It has been assembled over time, it's not linear, and that's reflective of our experience learning how to teach, too. It is not a guide and it definitely does not contain any advice for new teachers. It's our way of processing and a catalogue, in some sense, of process: reflections on the act of teaching, on challenges, on our position within institutions, and how all that shapes pedagogy. Swati and Lauren met in 2019 through the AICAD Post-Graduate Teaching Fellowship program, which "seeks to provide professional practice opportunities to high-achieving alumni who have recently graduated from AICAD member schools, while also increasing the racial and ethnic diversity of faculty at these institutions."
