Upcoming in the new year:
- On January 4th we will launch an updated Teaching Online Course Prep Guide, which breaks down how to develop an online course over 4 weeks.
- Each week in January we offer workshops that align with topics covered in the Guide. Expect more events to be posted in the coming weeks.
- Faculty are welcomed and encouraged to schedule a one-on-one consult to meet with us to discuss their courses and receive feedback. Please note that the CTL will be closed December 24th – January 3rd except for a limited number of appointments. Faculty wanting an appointment that week should request an appointment by December 21st.
- CUNY Central and the CUNY School of Professional Studies will run a January cohort of their “Online Teaching Essentials” workshop which focuses on teaching online asynchronously online using Blackboard. To date, Baruch has had over 130 participants (a mix of full and part-time faculty). The funding of the $500 stipend to participants who successfully complete the course is paid for by CUNY Central and they provide the CTL with a list of eligible participants. The CTL is in the process of reaching out directly to eligible faculty to determine interest in the limited number of spots.
Some things to keep in mind:
- All part-time and full-time faculty are welcome to participate in the CTL activities, even if they are not confirmed to teach in the Winter or Fall. Staff are welcome to attend our workshops too.
- Should a cohort of faculty in your department want to meet with our staff as a group to delve into any of the topics raised by the guide, please do not hesitate to reach out.
- Faculty can access recordings of select previous workshops.
- Stay tuned for additional video and multimedia resources!
