Faculty Commons, A Center for Teaching, Learning, Scholarship and Service coordinates all professional development, grants and assessment activities of faculty at New York City College of Technology. Faculty Commons adopts a programmatic approach to professional development and operates as a faculty resource and think tank where members collaborate on a variety of projects to shape curriculum, pedagogy and assessment.
The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) helps faculty and administrators compete for and win grants that strengthen the intellectual climate and improve the learning environment at City Tech. The office provides notices of grant opportunities and works with faculty and administrators over the life-cycle of a grant – from concept development through close-out.
The Professional Activity Report and Self-Evaluation (PARSE) is the documentation of a faculty member’s accomplishments during each academic year and cumulatively, in the three principal areas of teaching, scholarly and professional growth, and service. The PARSE serves as the basis for the annual evaluation. It is also provides faculty with an instrument to present to departmental and college review committees for reappointment, tenure, and promotion.
Call for Proposals: The 20th Anniversary Annual CUNY IT Conference: “Technologies for Teaching, Learning and Working at the Future CUNY — Utopias and Dystopias”
September 15, 2021 All day
The last year and a half gave us a glimpse of what the future may hold for the use of technologies in our daily work at CUNY, regardless of whether we continue to conduct it online or in person. What technologies do we expect to see in higher education in the future for teaching, learning, advising, administration, meeting, collecting data or collaborating and sharing ideas and documents? What do we hope to see, and what benefits will result? What do we fear with the arrival of these technologies?
For the 20th Anniversary Annual CUNY IT Conference we invite the CUNY community to share our diverse visions for the ideal — our utopias — as well as our fears of what could be lost — the possible dystopias. Proposals are due by September 15, 2021.
This 20th CUNY IT Conference will be held on December 2-3, 2021, exclusively online and is being organized by new Co-Chairs, Greet Van Belle of York College and Bronwen Stine of the School of Professional Studies. The Conference Co-Chairs and I envision presentations to start productive conversations among and between academics, staff, admins, instructional technologists, information technologists and/or external vendors.
