Intro to Hybridization
Wednesday, October 26, 12:30pm-1:30pm, NVC 14-266
Want to explore different ways you could adapt your course to a hybrid format? This workshop helps faculty appreciate the many ways a course can be developed to create a hybrid course that is a good experience for the students and faculty and is worthy of the topic. This workshop will present several hybrid course models and provide an overview of the basics of teaching a hybrid course including course structuring, assignment design, and assessment. During the workshop, faculty will have the opportunity to discuss how their courses could function in a hybrid model and will leave with a working knowledge of hybrid course models.

CTL Conversations: “Blackboard – Tips, Tricks, and Workarounds”
Wednesday, October 26, 4pm-5:30pm, NVC 14-269
Join us with BCTC’s Kevin Wolff, Baruch’s resident Blackboard expert. CTL Conversations is a time for faculty to come together to informally workshop, brainstorm and discuss topics related to their teaching. Each week we’ll focus on a new topic and will invite members of the Baruch community who have expertise in the topic to be on hand, too. Faculty are welcome to drop in and leave at any point during the session. Refreshments available. No RSVP necessary.
Tech Thursdays: Clickers
Thursday, October 27, 4pm-5pm CTL office, Newman Library building Room 123 (within the Subotnick Financial Center)
Clickers are electronic classroom response systems that allow students to provide rapid responses using in-class audience-polling technology. Clickers can be used for classroom management (i.e., taking attendance), stimulating class dialogue, and testing students' understanding of a topic. Join us to consider different clicker options and click here to learn more about clickers.
On the last Thursday of each month the CTL will host Tech Thursdays. These events will bring faculty together to pilot new educational technologies. To RSVP click here.

CTL Faculty Fellows Hybridization Seminar Application
Deadline: before Tuesday, November 1
Applications are now being accepted for the Center for Teaching and Learning’s Spring 2017 Hybridization Seminar. In this seminar, faculty fellows will meet throughout Spring 2017 to prepare their hybrid or online course to be taught in the upcoming year.
This is a terrific opportunity for Baruch faculty who have not yet experimented 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.
Fellowships are open to all Baruch faculty members in all departments. Priority for the fellowships will go to faculty members planning to teach the online/hybrid course in the Summer or Fall 2017 semesters who have not previously taught in an online/hybrid format, and to courses that have not previously been offered in this way.
Upon completion of the seminar, participating faculty will be given a course release equivalent to three credits to be taken during the Fall 2017, Winter 2018 or Spring 2018 semesters.
Applications can be found here and should be submitted before November 1st.
