From: Kannan Mohan, Interim Director of Baruch’s Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL)
Please see the workshop announcement below from George Otte, CUNY’s University Director of Academic Technology. This workshop would be valuable especially to those who have not taught online/hybrid courses and those who have not used Blackboard extensively but plan to do so in the future.
I am happy to discuss in more detail the structure and expectations of the workshop with any interested faculty, and to help you determine if the workshop is right for you.

Subject: April-May workshops for online and hybrid instruction
As we look ahead to the staffing of summer and fall courses, I thought you might want to know that we just now opened registration for the April - May 2016 workshops preparing CUNY faculty to teach online or hybrid courses, giving priority to those faculty slated to teach such courses in the summer. (There are June and July workshops forthcoming, which will also be opportunities for those teaching in the fall.)
So ... we are now accepting applications for April 4-17 and April 25-May 8 workshops of "Preparation for Teaching Online: A Foundational Workshop for CUNY Faculty." These workshops are completely online.
Applicants will need supervisory sign-off indicating they will be scheduled to teach at least one online or hybrid course in the term(s) ahead, That supervisory approval (by both the department/program head and the CAO) is especially important since the campuses are to pay each faculty member who successfully completes the workshop 10 hours at the non-teaching adjunct rate for their participation; this amount will be reimbursed to the college once the faculty member has taught six online or hybrid credits within the two semesters following the workshop. (As noted in earlier announcements, this is to ensure that there is follow-through -- actual delivery -- on the online or hybrid courses these workshops are intended to foster.)
The description of the workshops and the application form can be found at http://cunyonline.commons.gc.cuny.edu/ -- where you also find the full annual schedule of workshops at the bottom of the page, just above the means to register for the workshops.
