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 Fall 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 we are about to open registration for the Fall 2017 workshops preparing CUNY faculty to teach online or hybrid courses, giving priority to those faculty slated to teach such courses in the Winter and Spring terms.
Starting Friday, September 8, we will be accepting applications for the October 23 - November 5, 2017 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 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.
The description of the workshops and the application form can be found at http://cunyonline.commons.gc.cuny.edu/ -- where you also find the annual schedule of workshops at the bottom of the page, just above the link to register for the workshops (once registration is open).
