UPDATE

From:  Allison Lehr Samuels, Director, Baruch Center for Teaching and Learning

Dear Faculty Colleagues,

As of Fall 2016, the provost has revised the policy regarding payment for completion of this faculty development effort (see below for details about the workshop). Although we continue to expect that participants will teach six online or hybrid credits within the two semesters following the workshop, we will not wait for reimbursement from the CUNY central office before making those payments. Upon successful completion of the workshop, participants will be asked to re-affirm in writing their intention to teach six online or hybrid credits within the upcoming two semesters. They will then fill out timesheets for payment at the non-teaching adjunct rate for ten hours of course development—development of the courses they will revise or create based in part on what they learned in the workshop.

We are very happy to be able to pay members of the faculty in a more timely manner.

 

Best,

Allison Lehr Samuels

Dear Colleagues: 

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 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 and then teach six online or hybrid credits within the two semesters following the workshop (i.e., by the end of Fall 2017). At that point, Baruch would then process your payment.

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. 

 

Best,
Allison Lehr Samuels

Colleagues:

As we look ahead, even now, to the spring term of this academic year, I thought you would want to know that we just opened registration for the October and November 2016 workshops preparing CUNY faculty to teach online or hybrid courses, giving priority to those faculty slated to teach such courses in the coming spring term. 

So ... we are now accepting applications for October 17-30 and November 7-20 offerings of "Preparation for Teaching Online: A Foundational Workshop for CUNY Faculty." These workshops are completely online.

Applicants will need supervisory sign-off indicating that 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 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/ -- where you also find the full annual schedule of workshops at the bottom of the page, just above the link to register for the workshops.
