Spring Workshops

Great Teaching! Conversations with Faculty


New York Tech faculty have displayed great creativity in adapting courses to online, blended, and hybrid remote instruction in response to COVID-19. The Center for Teaching and Learning is hosting a series of conversations with faculty to explore the innovative ways they are teaching. The interviews will be live on Zoom and will be recorded and archived. Our goal is to provide a forum in which faculty members can exchange ideas and learn from one another.

  • Wenjia Li, Computer Science: Friday, April 16, 2021, 2:15-2:45 p.m.
  • Colleen Kirk, Management and Marketing Studies: Thursday, April 22, 2021, 4:15-4:45 p.m.
