CTI at a Glance
Fall 2020 Update
The data presented here are from June 1 - August 31, 2020
To help faculty prepare for a summer session taught entirely online and a fall semester with both online and in-person teaching scenarios, the CTI created multiple avenues of virtual support. This summer, the CTI designed and delivered a robust schedule of programming to support online learning, facilitated multiple department meetings, established schedules for extended technical support, and hosted daily, live drop-in support sessions.
The CTI also developed two important new resources to help instructors and teaching assistants get started in their roles at Cornell:
- The Teaching at Cornell Guide: an online introduction to key aspects of teaching and learning at Cornell University through the lens of the five elements the CTI believes to be critical to instructor success
- The TA Online Orientation: a voluntary, online option to prepare teaching assistants for their upcoming teaching responsibilities at Cornell
Workshops & Department Meetings
Between July and September 2020, CTI held more than 60 workshops and department meetings
- 54 workshops on online teaching, in-person teaching with remote students, and new learning technologies
- 14 department meetings
- The majority of the workshops were recorded as resources for faculty unable to attend live.
- Over 1700 faculty participated in these workshops and department meetings
- 94% of all survey respondents (faculty attending workshops and department meetings) said participating was a good use of their time.
Faculty Support Consultations
- More than 390 faculty visited our live drop-in sessions via Zoom for instructional design, teaching, or technology support.
- Over 2900 teaching support tickets resolved
- The University purchased a site license for Poll Everywhere, making polling available to all courses at no cost to students
- We made important updates to the Learning Technologies Resource Library
- Our two learning technology pilots FeedbackFruits (peer assessment) and Hypothes.is (social annotation) have been quite successful:
