Summer 2020 Faculty Working Groups

Faculty working groups are cohorts of instructors who meet together to develop their online or hybrid syllabi and activities for Fall 2020 or Spring 2021. Each group will have a different teaching focus and be led by experienced Hunter faculty who will help participants share ideas, problem-solve, and support one another through their syllabus design process. Groups will meet online at least four different times with meetings including a mixture of whole-group discussion, individual consultation, individual work time, and whole-group presentations. At the end of the last group meeting, participants will share their course syllabus and some of the activities they created. Participants who attend all sessions, complete their course syllabus, and present to the group will receive a stipend.

Open Educational Resources at Hunter Libraries

Finding Open Educational Resources (textbooks, courseware, and ancillary materials which can be freely used, reused, and remixed) can be a daunting task. Adding to this frustration is the fact that OERs are as diverse as the disciplines which seek to employ them. There is no “one size fits all” OER. Enter the Hunter Library’s OER office and our showcase OER repository Open Educational Resources (OER): A Libguide. Though digital pedagogy, digital tools, and OER materials represent a paradigm shift in the way education is provided, the library continues to be the faculty’s guide to available resources and information technologies.
