Here’s what’s happening at the Center for Teaching and Learning This Week:

CTL Conversations: “Data and Privacy in the Classroom – Working Session”

Wednesday, March 15, 4:00-5:00pm, NVC 14-269

Building upon the rich discussion held February, we will share further resources and work that is being done to assist faculty and students making informed decisions on this topic. Previous questions covered: What kind of data do we collect on our students in the course of developing our assignments and curriculum? How and where is this information being stored? When does our request for personal reflection and disclosure become intrusive? Who has access to the work that is being done by our students in our classes?
- RSVP is appreciated, but not necessary. Stop by for a few minutes or stay the whole time.

 

Workshop: “Using Open Education Resources (OERs)” cosponsored by Equality Archive

Thursday, March 16, 4:00-5:00pm, NVC 7-238

With the cost of textbooks so high, there is growing interest in CUNY for faculty to use and/or develop OERs, which are free or very low cost alternatives to textbooks. CUNYfirst also now offers students the ability to search for “Zero Cost” courses across all of CUNY, in which there is no textbook cost.  This workshop is designed to introduce faculty to how they might use and/or develop OERs. We are pleased to highlight an OER developed by Baruch’s own Prof. Shelly Eversley and discuss other types of OERs and resources. Participants will also hear about new CUNY initiatives to encourage adaption of OERs. Click here to RSVP.

 

Coming Up Next Week….

 

CTL Conversations:  “Designing and Assessing Multimodal Assignments” cosponsored by the Department of English’s First-Year Writing Program and Great Works of Literature:

Wednesday, March 22, 4:30-6:00pm, NVC 14-270

     AND/OR

Thursday, March 23, 12:30-2:00pm, NVC 14-280

Multimodal assignments ask students to use more than one of the modalities (i.e., visual, audio, gestural, spatial or linguistic) to create a meaning. A common typical multimodal assignment is asking students to develop a PowerPoint slide deck to use while delivering an oral presentation. Another multimodal assignment might be a photo-essay. In this curated forum, we explore what ways faculty from across disciplines might create multimodal assignments that harness the potential of digital media. Leave with assignments you can begin using this spring. Especially important for all faculty who currently teach or want to teach ENG 2150: Writing II. Come to one or both sessions.

RSVP is appreciated, but not necessary. Stop by for a few minutes or stay the whole time.
