Seeking Faculty Facilitators for New City Tech 101 Workshops — Info Session
May 6, 2022
Dear City Tech Faculty Members:
Are you interested in helping new City Tech students gain the knowledge and skills they need to be successful?
Have you ever wished new students were better prepared to navigate college?
Have you ever wondered how to better connect students with City Tech resources?
Are you ready to get students fully engaged in their education?
We cordially invite you to an information session about becoming an instructor for a new student success workshop: City Tech 101. City Tech 101 was created and piloted in Summer 2021 for sixty incoming students by Professors Karen Goodlad (Hospitality Management) and Sarah Paruolo (English), through First Year Programs. In its basic format, City Tech 101 is an 8-day, sixteen-hour workshop designed to enhance the college’s new student orientation with additional information and activities, as well as various opportunities to connect with faculty, staff, and current City Tech students. The workshop explores a variety of college services and resources available to assist students during their transition to college, and specifically to City Tech. Even in its pilot year, CT 101 has made a significant positive impact on the students it has reached. We would like you to be a part of student success at the college by teaching City Tech 101. Please attend the information session so you can learn more about the workshop, including: the learning outcomes, content, and instructional pedagogy. CT 101 Workshops will run in August 2022, with all instructors required to complete professional development in June. Full time and part time faculty are eligible for this opportunity.
