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.
Being a Scholar in the Digital Era: Transforming Scholarly Practices for the Public Good
October 27, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
What is the role of scholar-activists in times of political and social upheaval? How have digital technologies transformed scholarship and changed our conceptions of authority and audience? How does scholarship respond to challenges that communities confront?
Join CUNY Librarians and Faculty for a talk by guest speakers, Polly Thistlethwaite and Jesse Daniels, CUNY faculty and authors of Being a Scholar in the Digital Era: Transforming Scholarly Practices for the Public Good (Policy Press, 2016). The talk will be followed by a lively open discussion about scholarly practices, digital publics, activism, and the ethics of sharing. Refreshments will be served.
We encourage session attendees to submit questions and comments in advance of the session to start a discussion.
This event, hosted by the LACUNY Scholarly Communications Roundtable, is part of Open Access Week (October 23-29, 2017).
