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.
OLAC: Transitioning to hybrid and partially online courses in the fall
May 6, 2021
The Online Learning Advisory Council (OLAC) Presents: A Monthly Series of 30-minute Express Tips and Conversations from experienced City Tech online professors
Location: City Tech Blackboard Basics for Faculty, Spring 2021. Log into the workshop in Blackboard and go to Collaborate and announcements. The workshop will be held in Collaborate (unless changed to Zoom. Then the location will be found in the announcements.)
Presenters: Professors Mary Sue Donsky, Pete Catapano, and Tanya Goetz with Dr. Karen Lundstrem
Now that all professors have taught fully online throughout the pandemic, how can they take what works best online and blend it with their face-to-face classes to create an effective hybrid or partially online course? How can hybrids satisfy students’ desires for online flexibility in their schedules with the in-classroom experience of learning? This workshop will provide examples from the professors’ courses and discussion from their years of teaching hybrid courses.
