Are you teaching part-time at CityU? Would you like to know more about teaching CityU students? A Generic Introduction to Part-time Teaching at CityU for New Faculty will help you get oriented to both your students and the educational approaches at CityU.

In this online module you will:

  • Learn about the background of our students, how they live, and the challenges they face;
  • Find out how to make the most out of meeting students for the first time;
  • Learn a few fundamentals on using discussions in your teaching;

  • Pick up some essentials of assessment and grading;
  • Discover about student diversity and inclusion;
  • Get an idea about teaching with technology; and,

The module video is about 12 minutes long. Participants take a pre-quiz, work through the video materials, and take the post-quiz for a module. If they score at least 70% on the post-quiz for a given module, they get a digital badge and a Certificate of Completion for that module.
