From: Prof. Karen Shelby, Department of Fine and Performing Arts, Chair of the Faculty Senate’s Committee on Educational Technology. This Call for Proposals is sponsored also by BCTC and the CTL.
The Committee on Education Technology is invested in finding ways in which to foster a collaborative relationship with the CTL and BCTC. One of the initiatives is through the linked Call for Project proposals, which are designed to provide opportunities for faculty to further the use of digital technologies in teaching and learning in the classroom. The Call for the Academic Year 2017-18 places an emphasis on supporting effective/innovative collaborations across CUNY; successful online/digital education partnerships within CUNY colleges and programs; and CUNY Open Educational Resource initiatives. Faculty who wish to incorporate COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning) into their pedagogy also are encouraged to apply for project funding.
Baruch is currently interested in supporting hybrid courses and CUNY in general is invested in supporting OERs. OERs may be defined (Educause, 2010) as "any resources available at little or no cost that can be used for teaching, learning, or research. The term can include textbooks, course readings, and other learning content; simulations, games, and other applications; syllabi, quizzes, and assessment tools; and virtually any other educational material. Open resources are issued under a license that spells out how they can be used: Some may only be used in their original form; in other cases, resources can be modified, remixed, and redistributed.” OERs are usually: free, available online, and sometimes changeable. Examples of two successful OERs founded by Baruch faculty are AHTR (Art History Teaching Resources) and the Equality Archive.
