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, April 19, 4:00-5:00pm
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 to the Baruch CTL Conversation is appreciated, but not necessary. Stop by for a few minutes or stay the whole time.
Later This Month….

Proposal Due: Grants to Support Teaching and Learning with Technology at Baruch College 2017-2018
Proposals due Thursday, April 27
With funding from the Baruch student technology fee, the Baruch Computing and Technology Center (BCTC) is providing grants of up to $3,000 for projects that further the use of digital technologies in teaching and learning. For the purposes of this grant “digital technologies” broadly encompass many different technologies in the classroom and in support of the classroom. Grants will be awarded until allocated funds for this round are expended. Approximately twelve awards are anticipated. Click here to see the Call for Proposal: http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/bctc/intech/cfp.htm
This year the program will fund proposals that support effective/innovative collaborations across CUNY; successful online/digital education partnerships within CUNY colleges and programs; and CUNY Open Educational Resource initiatives. Priority will be given to projects that would be effective for one or more faculty, disciplines, or CUNY colleges. It is also possible, if need is adequately demonstrated, to combine two grants if the costs of the project exceed $3,000. All full-time faculty of Baruch College are eligible.
