Professional Development Events

The Technology Teaching and Learning Group (TTLG) collaborates with Hunter's Academic Center for Excellence in Research and Teaching (ACERT) in facilitating professional development activities to encourage faculty to use innovative pedagogy, technology, and assessment in their activities as teachers and scholars.

Faculty Development workshop

  • Workshops
    Our workshops are meant for faculty who want to learn technology tools in the context of how they can be used in college classrooms and with examples of how they have been used by Hunter colleagues. We update them semester after semester as technology tools and instructors' needs change.
  • Faculty Innovations in Teaching with Technology (FITT)
    The FITT program, launched by President Raab in 2008, offers Hunter faculty stipends and support from an educational technologist to work on new ways of incorporating technology in their classes.  The FITT call for proposals goes out in the spring semester and work on the projects takes place during the summer months.
  • ACERT Lunchtime Seminars
    A weekly seminar in which faculty share their experiences using technology for teaching and learning. Recent seminars have included "Online course development: First takes," "Beyond Blackboard: What your LMS can do for you?," and "Scaffolding student multimedia projects."
  • Guided Explorations
    In these workshop series, faculty are introduced to a new pedagogical approach or to a complex tool that could potentially fill many pedagogical needs.  Faculty explore scenarios in which this tool or approach might be used and begin to apply these ideas to their own teaching. Topics have included hybrid course design, ePortfolio pedagogy, and strategies for teaching with online meeting tools. 
  • Teaching Scholarship Circles
    These biweekly seminars, organized around specific topics, offer faculty an intensive and ongoing opportunity to enhance their pedagogy. Faculty participants read scholarly articles and share their teaching experiences with colleagues.  Many of these series are co-facilitated by an educational technologist and a faculty member. Topics have included teaching hybrid and online courses and publishing research on your pedagogy.
