From: Allison Lehr Samuels, Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning
Applications are now being accepted for the Center for Teaching and Learning’s Spring 2017 Hybridization Seminar. In this seminar, faculty fellows will meet throughout Spring 2017 to prepare their hybrid or online course to be taught in the upcoming year.
The CTL Faculty Fellows Hybridization Seminar is a terrific opportunity for Baruch faculty who have not yet experimented with teaching in an online/hybrid format. Seminar participants will be encouraged to think creatively about how teaching in this format can open up new pedagogical opportunities within and across disciplines. With the guidance of the CTL staff and feedback from other faculty fellows, participating faculty will develop syllabi, assignments, assessments, online learning resources, and digital spaces for their course. Faculty Fellows will be matched with a CTL Hybridization Fellow, whose role is to work with the Faculty Fellow throughout the semester.
Fellowships are open to all Baruch faculty members in all departments. Priority for the fellowships will go to faculty members planning to teach the online/hybrid course in the Summer or Fall 2017 semesters who have not previously taught in an online/hybrid format, and to courses that have not previously been offered in this way.
Applications for the Hybridization Seminar can be found on the CTL website and should be submitted before November 1. Applications will be read by the CTL Advisory Committee, which includes administrators and faculty members from all three schools.
Upon completion of the seminar, participating faculty will be given a course release equivalent to three credits. The course release must be taken during the Fall 2017, Winter 2018 or Spring 2018 semesters and must be agreed upon by the faculty and department in writing.
If faculty have questions, they may reach out to CTL Hybrid Coordinator, Laurie Hurson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
