The Center for Teaching & Learning is pleased to invite faculty to participate in the second round of our mentoring program that focuses on the development of hybrid courses to be taught spring 2011 or fall 2011. The program is funded in part by a grant from the CUNY Office of Academic Affairs. Faculty from all academic disciplines are invited to apply.
The deadline to apply was Wednesday, December 15. (Selected participants were notified Saturday, December 18.)

No experience teaching online is necessary, but participants will commit to teaching one course as a hybrid (50% online) in fall 2011. We are looking to recruit 10 participants who will collaborate with each other. Selection criteria include applicants’ experience with Internet-based technologies and online pedagogies. Each member of the cohort will be expected to develop and teach at least one course that has an online component to replace at least 50% of the regularly scheduled class time. In support of this objective, the group will:
take part in an orientation to online pedagogies in a week-long hybrid workshop (brief online work to be completed the week before the workshop; face-to-face meetings January 10, 12, 14; asynchronous hands-on activities January 11, 13);
have access to sustained technological support from the Ed Tech Lab and pedagogical advice from the Center for Teaching & Learning;
contribute to the development of measurable student learning outcomes;
learn to develop documentation for demonstrating online teaching effectiveness, useful for reappointment/tenure/promotion;
receive a $2,000 stipend.
Faculty who participate will need to provide sign-off from their department chair, including the chair’s commitment to offering as a hybrid the course or courses that will be developed.
