We are pleased to announce that the Carnegie Educational Technology Fellows (CET) program at the Graduate Center is now open. Ten Graduate Fellows, each with extensive teaching and support experiences at CUNY, have been selected from the GC’s three disciplinary clusters.
Starting Monday, January 25th, fellows will offer the following services to Graduate Center faculty:
Daily Virtual Office Hours and Consultations
In these meetings, fellows will assist GC faculty on using digital technologies and crafting pedagogical approaches for their online classes.We invite faculty to bring questions or concerns about video-conferencing platforms (Zoom, Blackboard Collaborate, etc.), as well as the development of materials, assignments, and approaches for online teaching. Fellows are prepared to address technical, practical, and pedagogical inquiries.
Fellows will be available by request to visit Graduate Center courses for instructional purposes. Unfortunately, fellows will not be able to attend the same course repeatedly to offer ongoing support. The goal of these visits will be to help faculty members and their students manage their synchronous courses. Please use our Consultations form to request a class visit.
Workshops and Documentation
Throughout the semester, the CET Fellows will offer a variety of workshops for faculty on relevant technological skills and communication strategies that can support their teaching practice. Potential topics include running asynchronous discussions, designing digital fields work and research projects, inclusive pedagogy and more. More information about these workshops will be forthcoming.
Throughout the spring semester, CET Fellows will produce and distribute documentation on tools and approaches supported at the GC. This documentation will be added to the GC Online website.
We invite you to get in touch with any questions, concerns, or inquiries that you have, and we look forward to working with you this semester!!
