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.
Modeling Your Assignments after Your Own Writing Practices
December 2, 2022
This workshop is designed to support faculty as they reflect on their own approach to writing and use those insights to guide new experiments with student writing assignments. This interactive and discussion-based workshop will begin with a free write about what we do as writers, and then use our reflections to talk about, draft, and/or redraft an assignment inspired by these insights. Participants will leave the workshop with this draft, which they may decide to develop and implement. This workshop is open to anyone from any discipline who assigns any amount of writing.
