Full-time Faculty: “Spring 2018 CTL Hybridization Seminar”
Applications due by Friday, October 27
The Center for Teaching and Learning is now accepting applications for the Spring 2018 Hybridization Seminar. In this seminar, faculty fellows will meet throughout the spring semester to prepare a 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 little to no experience 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. Each Faculty Fellow will be matched with a CTL Hybridization Fellow, whose role is to support and collaborate with the Faculty Fellow throughout the semester.
Fellowships are open to faculty members in all departments. Priority for the fellowships will go to faculty members planning to teach the online/hybrid course in the Fall 2018 or Spring 2019 semesters who have not previously taught in an online/hybrid format, and/or to courses that have not previously been offered in this way.
If accepted to the program, faculty are expected to attend all seminar meetings (listed below), attend a minimum of three CTL fall workshops that support their hybrid course development, meet with his/her CTL Hybridization Fellow throughout the semester, and contribute to a seminar blog. All meetings and workshops will take place at Baruch. Seminar meetings will be held:
- Friday, February 9, 10:00am-2:30pm
- Friday, March 16, 10:00am-2:30pm
- Friday, April 13, 10:00am-2:30pm
- Friday, May 11, 10:00am-3:30pm
By the end of the seminar, faculty members will be expected to develop a completed syllabus and demonstrate significant progress in the creation of original course materials, including detailed assignments, for their course.
Participating faculty will be given a course release equivalent to three hours. The course release must be taken during the Spring 2018, Fall 2018, or Spring 2019 semesters and must be agreed upon by the faculty and department in writing.
