Podcasting and Web 2.0 Faculty Development
OIT is committed to providing BCC faculty with the instructional
technology capabilities they need to stay informed and current.
Podcasting and Web 2.0 faculty development programs are designed to
build that kind of currency. These programs concentrate on areas that
represent the cutting edge of instructional technology applications.
Each represents an opportunity to further develop teaching practice
and to take advantage of the rapidly changing technology available at
BCC, across CUNY, and on the web. Participants receive a stipend, paid
in increments, corresponding to the achievement of program
Multimedia: Building Stronger Connections Inside and Outside
This program will provide hands-on training on how to produce
screencasts and audio/video podcasts and discover how these tools
can effectively enhance the teaching and learning environment of
your courses. The workshop will also explore the pedagogical aspect of
multimedia as a device for tutorials, for creating activities and
assignments, and as an extension of the learning experience beyond
class time. Modeling, course design, and alignment of course objectives,
will be included in the pedagogical framework of this workshop. Laptop
computers and microphones will be provided, though participants are
encouraged to bring their own laptop if available. Participants will
plan, produce, and deliver multimedia in a Fall 2012 course. No online
teaching experience is required. Program Incentive: $1,000 stipend, paid
in two increments.
Teaching with Alternative Technology
The term “Web 2.0” (2004-present) is commonly associated
with web applications that facilitate interactive information sharing,
interoperability, user-centered design, and collaboration on the World
Wide Web. This second generation of the Web, enables people with no
specialized technical knowledge to create their own websites, to
self-publish, share photos and information and complete a variety of other
tasks such as social networking and media utilization. During these hands-on
sessions we will examine and explore four web 2.0 applications that could be
incorporated into coursework that can exist inside or outside a Blackboard
environment. Participants will learn about methodologies used by others and
guided through their development process, and will utilize a web 2.0
application in a Fall 2012 course. No online teaching experience is required.
Program Incentive: $1,000 stipend, paid in two increments.
