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.
As a space dedicated to language, the Writing Center looks forward to celebrating International Mother Language Day on Tuesday, Feb. 21st from 1pm-3pm inL-632 (the faculty lounge in the Library Building). This day marks the importance of multilingual education and the value of bringing more languages into public life. To celebrate, we will have a line-up of performances/readings in mother languages by students, faculty, and staff, as well as time for attendees to share if they are inspired to do so. Refreshments will be provided. If you would like to perform, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the City Tech Writing Center, we want to celebrate the linguistic diversity that currently inhabits our campus with more than 85 different languages spoken. Languages contain ways of knowing and being that express visions of the world from a particular community. By celebrating our Mother Tongues, we contribute to building inclusive knowledge societies and preserving cultural heritage that might otherwise be lost.
