John Jay College Teaching eHandbook—Revised, Updated Edition
This unofficial guide is designed to be a “How-To” for faculty as a reference—quick-tips on “best practices” in teaching, basic pedagogy, emerging teaching techniques, and teaching techniques to specifically address the needs of our student population. We also offer advice on planning your courses, online teaching, and on various aspects on the “nuts and bolts” of our school—everything from where our printshop is located, to the correct person to consult about plagiarism, to how to design your course, to designing virtual office hours.
A NOTE TO OUR READERS:
The first edition of this handbook debuted six years ago. We remain indebted to Betsy Gitter, Provost Bowers, and CAT’s initial team for their amazing work.
This year, we have gone to great lengths to update this handbook. We are still in a transition phase, however, and welcome your feedback until March 10th, when we will convert this to a PDF file. Please feel free to email CAT’s director, Jessica Kovler, at JKovler@jjay.cuny.edu or CAT’s assistant, Maria Stanczak, at CAT@jjay.cuny.edu with thoughts, ideas, and suggestions.
