Workshops & Institutes
Faculty have the ability to participate in several workshops throughout the year. Below is a series of on-going workshops along with the current schedule and offerings.
- Preparation for Teaching Online: A Foundational Workshop for CUNY Faculty. We invite you to participate in a two-week, asynchronous, instructor-facilitated workshop, offered several times a year. The workshop models effective design and facilitation skills, and addresses pedagogical approaches to teaching online and hybrid, as well as organization and management of an online class, providing first-hand experience in online learning. You will need your supervisor's (chair's) approval before you register and be scheduled to teach a total of two online or hybrid courses within two semesters following the workshop. Faculty who successfully complete the workshop are eligible for payment based on 10 hours at their NTA rate (up to $550 total).
- Course Design Institute (CDI). The course design institute is a structured path for Lehman faculty to develop, revise and build model courses. The course is meant to be an exemplary course shell and may be used by the developing faculty, as well as other faculty within the department. Faculty will need to complete a series of steps over the course of 12 weeks to revise and build the course, dedicating 2 to 4 hours weekly to complete the steps. With the support of instructional designers, faculty will have the support necessary to design and revise to meet OSCQR standards. As part of the process, courses will be designed and reviewed, the OSCQR rubric . Please Note: Courses will need to be approved by the faculty Chair before the Office of Online Education can move forward with the application.
- Enhancing Your (Online or Hybrid) Course through the Use of Open Educational Resources (OER) Workshop. We invite you to participate in a two-week, asynchronous, instructor-facilitated workshop. You will learn how to refresh and renew your course using OER and possibly replace a textbook. You will need your supervisor's (chair's) approval before you register and be scheduled to teach an online or a hybrid course that you plan to enhance with OER. Faculty who successfully complete the workshop are eligible for payment based on 10 hours at their NTA rate (up to $550 total).
- Accessibility and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Workshop for CUNY Faculty. We invite you to join this two-week, fully online, asynchronous, instructor-facilitated workshop. The workshop provides an in-depth introduction to accessibility and UDL for online and hybrid teaching. This workshop uses a faculty development approach, which focuses on exploring and evaluating essential concepts and resources.
