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.
Presenters: Professor Mary Sue Donsky and Dr. Karen Lundstrem
This workshop will help you determine how best to design your hybrid course, with attention to which activities work best online synchronously, asynchronously, and face-to-face. A special focus will be given to synchronous online teaching and activities since many professors will be teaching mostly or fully online this fall. Come prepared to discuss and ask questions about your actual courses for this semester or the spring.
This workshop kicks off the fall semester’s Monthly Express Series on Teaching Hybrid Courses from the Online Learning Advisory Council (OLAC). To participate, log into Blackboard, City Tech Blackboard Basics for Faculty Fall 2021 (under “My Courses”).
