Following are three faculty development opportunities that offer compensation.
Baruch CTL Faculty Development Opportunities ….
Adjunct Workshop: “CTL Teaching Workshop for Adjunct Faculty on June 8, 2017”
Applications due by Friday, May 12
The Center for Teaching and Learning will be conducting a teaching workshop on Thursday, June 8, 2017 from10am to 4pm for adjunct faculty members and graduate teaching fellows who teach (or plan to teach) at Baruch College. You are invited to apply for the workshop, which includes a series of presentations, roundtable workshops, and breakout sessions designed to introduce various pedagogical opportunities and support. This workshop is open to all Baruch adjunct faculty members and graduate teaching fellows in all departments.
Please click here to learn more about the event and to apply.
Seats in the workshop are limited. Acceptances will be determined by the CTL faculty committee based on the application statement and other submitted materials. Upon completion of the workshop, participating faculty will be paid for seven hours at the Non-Teaching Adjunct rate. (Acceptance and pay for participation is dependent on overload constraints.) Lunch will also be provided.
Full-time Faculty: “Fall 2017 CTL Hybridization Seminar”
Applications due by Friday, May 19
The Center for Teaching and Learning is now accepting applications for the Fall 2017 Hybridization Seminar. In this seminar, faculty fellows will meet throughout the fall semester to prepare a hybrid or online course to be taught in the upcoming year.
The CTL Faculty Fellows Hybridization Seminar 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. With the guidance of the CTL staff and feedback from other faculty fellows, participating faculty will develop syllabi, assignments, assessments, online learning resources, and digital spaces for their course. Faculty Fellows will be matched with a CTL Hybridization Fellow, whose role is to support and collaborate with the Faculty Fellow throughout the semester.
Fellowships are open to all Baruch full-time faculty members in all departments. Priority for the fellowships will go to faculty members planning to teach the online/hybrid course in the Spring 2018 or Summer 2018 semesters who have not previously taught in an online/hybrid format, and to courses that have not previously been offered in this way.
If accepted to the program, faculty are expected to attend all seminar meetings (listed below), attend a minimum of three CTL fall workshops that support their hybrid course development, meet with his/her CTL Hybridization Fellow throughout the semester, and contribute to a seminar blog. All meetings and workshops will take place at Baruch. Seminar meetings will be held:
- Friday, September 15th, 10:00am-2:30pm
- Friday, October 13th, 10:00am-2:30pm
- Friday, December 8th, 10:00am-3:30pm
By the end of the seminar, faculty members will be expected to develop a completed syllabus and demonstrate significant progress in the creation of original course materials, including detailed assignments, for their course.
Participating faculty will be given a course release equivalent to three credits. The course release must be taken during the Fall 2017 or Spring 2018 semesters and must be agreed upon by the faculty and department in writing.

Want to learn more about Hybridization?
A great way to get a sense of the seminar and the range of work that is developed by faculty is to join us on for the Hybrid Showcase on May 5, when Spring 2017 CTL Hybridization Seminar participants will share their work. The schedule for the day can be viewed here. Please click here to RSVP to the showcase. Stop by for a few minutes or stay the whole time.
Faculty Development Opportunity Through The CUNY School of Professional Studies….
Below you’ll find the workshop announcement from George Otte, CUNY’s University Director of Academic Technology. This workshop would be especially valuable to those who have not taught or developed online/hybrid courses and those who have not used Blackboard extensively but plan to do so in the future.
Per the email below, you are eligible to receive payment for 10 hours at the non-teaching adjunct rate should you successfully complete the workshop. As noted below, we expect that will teach at least six online or hybrid credits within the two semesters following the workshop (i.e., by the end of Spring 2018).
Please reach out to me should you have any questions about the workshops and/or would like assistance in determining if this aligns with your needs.
This message is being sent on behalf of Dean George Otte.
I want you to know that this Friday, we will open registration for the summer 2017 workshops preparing CUNY faculty to teach online or hybrid courses, giving priority to those faculty slated to teach such courses in the fall.
Starting Friday, May 5, we will be accepting applications for June 5-18 and July 17-30 offerings of "Preparation for Teaching Online: A Foundational Workshop for CUNY Faculty." These workshops (there will be several sections) are completely online.
Applicants will need supervisory sign-off indicating they are 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 campus CAO) is especially important since the colleges are to pay each faculty member who successfully completes the workshop 10 hours at the NTA (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/.
