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.
City Tech faculty are cordially invited to participate in the 2023-2024 FC/LSCC Publications Support workshop series, with the goal of each participant setting a long-term goal and making substantial progress on their scholarly endeavors. The series may be of interest to faculty from disciplines where training is not typically focused on publication, to new faculty, and to mid-career and senior faculty seeking to reenergize or refocus their scholarly activities. The group will meet once a month. Meetings include a guest speaker on a topic of interest, as well as group discussions of monthly goals, progress, and challenges. See the Faculty Publication Support Workshop Series OpenLab site for the full schedule of topics.
If interested, please join us for the first meeting:
Friday, September 22 from 12:00pm – 1:30pm
