Peer Mentoring: A Catalyst for Faculty Innovation

Presentation at the 9th Annual CUNY IT Conference | December 3, 2010

Blackboard-based faculty development at Bronx Community College features faculty mentors who provide ongoing support to instructors developing online courses.  This approach creates a supportive environment that fosters: 1) faculty re-training to explore “next-generation” technologies like Web 2.0 and podcasting; 2) faculty incorporating new technologies into their teaching, without training; 3) expanded application of technologies into classes with multiple sections and broader participation among new faculty; 4) integration of student Instructional Technology Tutors into faculty training.

A New Path to Online Learning: ePortfolios at Bronx Community College

Presentation at the 15th Annual Sloan-C International Conference on Online Learning | October 30, 2009

This presentation addresses the following questions: What can ePortfolios bring to online learning for students? What can ePortfolios bring to online teaching for faculty? And what can ePortfolios offer at the Institutional level? The presenters suggest a range of answers to these questions and document the history of ePortfolio development at Bronx Community College, from assessing the curriculum and selecting a platform, supporting faculty and curricular development, and the logistics of IT integration and funding support. The results of piloting the ePortfoliossuggest a positive impact for various types of students (job-seeking, self-reflective, etc.) and instructors’ needs (course management, assessment, etc.). Presenters conclude with lessons learned and next steps.
