Wanna Teach Online @Geneseo?

SummerOnlineAre you interested in teaching online this summer? Want to know what Geneseo’s online education program is all about? Attend our informational panel discussions with Geneseo faculty who have recently taught online.

Tuesday, February 9th
11:30am – 1:00pm
Milne 105

This panel discussion may be of interest to those faculty members submitting the 2016 Online Instruction Curriculum Development Application sent by Dean Savi Iyer.

SUNY Geneseo began offering summer online courses in a limited way in 2008, and the program has grown steadily over years. In this panel discussion, Geneseo faculty members will share their experiences with what worked (as well as what didn’t work). This would be a good session to attend for those faculty members considering offering a new online course in Summer 2016.

Faculty members scheduled to participate in the discussion include:
Kurt Cylke (Sociology)
Jennifer Katz (Psychology)
Cynthia Klima (Languages and Literatures)

However, we encourage EVERYONE and anyone who has taught online to come and talk about your experiences. Please RSVP**.

**Note: rsvp’s are requested for attendance purposes only so we can ensure enough space and food for everyone. If you find that you are able to attend, but have not rsvp’d, you are more than welcome to do so.

GOLD: Don’t Believe Everything You Read

Determining a source’s worth is more complicated than identifying whether or not it is scholarly or popular. All types of sources–even those that are scholarly–can potentially host biased stances and/or flawed conclusions. Workshop attendees will be empowered to evaluate all of their sources beyond the surface-level, enhancing the quality of their own scholarship.
