There are a few new initiatives currently available to provide support to faculty in online instruction… one is local to the Lehman Faculty and will be conducted onsite here at Lehman beginning December 9th (posting and more information follows) and this offering provided by CUNY Central – a fully online certification program that is set to begin in January…
CUNY is again offering an online workshop in January for those planning to teach partly or fully online classes in the spring. As before, participants will be paid 10hrs at the NTA (non-teaching adjunct) rate for their participation
Here is the link both to the description of the program and to the application form (at the end):
Applications are due not later than December 7th.
Supervisors will then be notified (and CAOs cc’ed) to verify that each applicant
1) will indeed be teaching a fully online or hybrid course in the spring term, and
2) is an important member of the instructional staff, likely to have a positive influence on the spread of online or hybrid teaching.
Note that, for this workshop, it will be especially important to verify that what is learned in the workshop will be applied in the spring semester for an interesting reason: spring will be the last semester before the Blackboard upgrade. Future sessions (planned for April and the summer) will be done, not on our current version(Blackboard 8), but on Blackboard 9.1.
