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.
BWRC Breakfast Talks: Making Wine on the Brooklyn Waterfront:Blending Community, Philanthropy, and Education
December 1, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
The Red Hook Winery, located on a pier along the Brooklyn waterfront was founded in 2008. Come hear one of the winery’s three winemakers, Christopher Nicolson, speak about using grapes from New York State vineyards in the Finger Lakes and the L.I. North Fork regions to create a variety of unique wines that exhibit New York State’s diverse offerings.
Joining Christopher will be City Tech’s Karen Goodlad, who will lead a conversation with the winemaker and four students who are learning wine making. City Tech students helped at the winery after the destruction of Superstorm Sandy, and the Red Hook Winery has been reciprocating by teaching City Tech students how to make wine. Come hear what the students have learned in this program sponsored by the Julia Child Foundation.
