This email is being sent to all members of the Baruch College faculty.

From:  Kannan Mohan, Interim Director of Baruch’s Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL)

Dear Colleagues: 

Please see the workshop announcement below from George Otte, CUNY’s University Director of Academic Technology. This workshop would be valuable especially 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.  I am happy to discuss in more detail the structure and expectations of the workshop with any interested faculty, and to help you determine if the workshop is right for you.  

Best wishes,
Kannan Mohan

 

From:  George Otte, Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, The CUNY School of Professional Studies

(Note: the following has been excerpted from Dean Otte’s message to CUNY’s Chief Academic Officers)

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

We are now accepting applications for June 13-26 and July 18-31 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 campuses are to pay each faculty member who successfully completes the workshop 10 hours at the 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 means to register for the workshops.

Thanks for your attention to this. 

--George
