Podcasting and Web 2.0 Faculty Development Programs

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 benchmarks.

Multimedia: Building Stronger Connections Inside and Outside Your Classroom

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.
