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 submission on Asian faculty, staff, and student experience during the pandemic
April 10, 2022 All day
Dear Asian faculty, staff, and students at City Tech,
Hope you are well and staying safe. As you may know, I’m the editor for City Tech Writer, the journal of outstanding writing at City Tech. I wanted to follow up with the call for Asian faculty and students to submit audio, video, and/or written text from faculty, staff, AND students who would like to discuss their experiences during the pandemic. I’ve created an ad previewing what the project would look/feel like here, featuring a powerful narration from a student: https://youtu.be/gv_xzpzIg1Q
Narrating our experiences can be a powerful way to process trauma from hate-related incidents, or simply to just inform the broader public/administration about the added stresses that have attended the rise in violence against AAPI. Contributions will be compiled into a short documentary that will be included in this year’s issue of CTW. The documentary will be presented as part of a virtual event in early May, after the issue’s publication, linked to AAPI Heritage Month.
Those submitting have the option of either identifying yourself or remaining anonymous in the video. You can see further guidelines + submit here: https://forms.gle/yWsyHnebf1pyNFj46
I know everyone’s doing a LOT, so please only participate if you have the time and want to! If you are interested, it would be great if you could provide your testimony by April 10 (please note extended deadline)_. Also, if you can, it would be great if you could forward this message to Asian students whom you think might be interested in participating.
Due to space lengths, I will have to prioritize the first 10-15 testimonials that I receive. Beyond that I may not be able to include your testimonial in the mini-documentary; however, I will try to include a written version (or at least an excerpt) in a supplementary page of this year’s CTW.
Thank you for speaking up about an issue that affects us all.
