Faculty Web Projects

Faculty who have participated in professional programs at LaGuardia’s Center for Teaching and Learning have drawn from their growing knowledge and experiences to create a wealth of online resources. Some sites are designed as resources for specific courses, others help make information more readily available to the College community. Still others provide a space for dialogue, enabling colleagues to deepen and expand their communication about issues related to education beyond the structure of institutes and seminars. Many of the faculty sites are useful not only for the LaGuardia community, but as resources for students, educators and others in the world beyond the College. LaGuardia faculty often cite the one-on-one technical assistance they receive from the Center’s instructional design team, including the STMs (Student Technology Mentors), IDAs (Instructional Design Assistants), and instructional designers credited below, as a key ingredient in being able to develop and produce online resources.

The African Roots of Latin Music
(http://faculty.lagcc.cuny.edu/ahernandez/afroots)
This site was conceptualized by Ana Maria Hernandez. Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, Hernandez guided the project and, in collaboration with Max Rodriguez and Gustavo Moretto, developed the course resources and materials. Abby Schoneboom designed the site, and developed it in conjunction with IDA Delwar Sayeed and Priscilla Stadler.
Math on the Web (http://faculty.lagcc.cuny.edu/hdelcham)
Hendrick Delcham has done a great job of incorporating online textbook materials and tutorials with his own review notes, homework assignments and student projects. Students can take advantage of this clear and easy to navigate site to find the help they need as they make their way through algebra, pre-calculus and statistics courses. This site was designed by Turgut Tezir.

Phyllis van Slyck (http://faculty.lagcc.cuny.edu/phyllisvs/default.htm)
Collecting images, syllabi, sample lessons, links to Phyllis van Slyck's work in the area of learning communities, and other features, this website, developed with the help of Abby Schoneboom, provides an excellent picture of Professor van Slyck's commitment to pedagogy that reflects an awareness of cultural diversity as well as her interest in postcolonial literature (African, Caribbean, Latin American literature), literature of the Southwest, Hispanic-American literature; and postmodern and psychoanalytic approaches to literature, in particular, explorations of "identity" as a social and psychological construct.

ESL Listening and Reading (http://faculty.lagcc.cuny.edu/mcourtney)
Both of the course websites available through this link provide excellent examples of how to make materials and resources readily available to students. In addition to thoughtful lessons, comprehensive external links and provocative discussion board prompts, you’ll see how easy it is to integrate Blackboard features into a website of your own design. Monica Courtney developed these sites. Abby Schoneboom worked on the Reading course site; IDAs Delwar Sayeed and Winston Casalinuevo on the Listening/Speaking course site.
Gary Richmond (http://faculty.lagcc.cuny.edu/garyrichmond)

Check out the HUL Radio 100 course to see what students did when given the opportunity to develop their own radio scripts! IDA Turgut Tezir designed the web site.
Kamal Hajallie (http://faculty.lagcc.cuny.edu/khajallie/courses.htm)
All relevant course materials such as syllabi, assignments, practice exams, and solutions to exam questions have been posted here for easy access. There are also links that will help students master the course material, and sites that allow students to work on problems interactively or read about certain concepts and study examples. For those who are interested in a historical perspective, there is link to a wonderful history of mathematics site. This site was designed by Kamal Hajallie and IDA Delwar Sayeed.
Nancy Gross (http://faculty.lagcc.cuny.edu/ngross/PairedCourses.htm) taught an ESL 98/Human Services 101 pair in the Spring of 2003. This is a collection of the writing students did while in that pair. IDA Mariam Abdallah designed the site. This type of course website can be a precursor to students’ ePortfolio experience.
Evelyn Burg (http://faculty.lagcc.cuny.edu/burgev)
Containing syllabi for her various college courses, suggested assignments for College Now Literacy and Propaganda instructors, links to the Blackboard course management system and practice for the ACT/COMPASS exam, the LaGuardia homepage and Internet sources, as well as her work with Women for Afghan Women, this site was developed by Evelyn Burg and IDAs Dominika Kubica and Kevin Miu.
George McCormack (http://faculty.lagcc.cuny.edu/gmccormack/default.htm)
Developed with the invaluable assistance of IDA Ali Abdallah, this ambitious site provides Math 096 students (and other math challenged people!) an opportunity to watch the solving of math problems unfold step by step as they hear and watch videos of Professor McCormack explaining how to solve the problems.
Patti Juza (http://faculty.lagcc.cuny.edu/pjuza) developed this site for her advanced level ESL reading course focusing on Fast Food Nation.

The site provides details of the staging and development of a semester-long research project which requires General Psychology students to visit the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and select an art piece which they relate to a psychological concept. Visit the site to see the specific materials used in this project, as well as examples of students' papers.
Developed by Carolyn Sterling-Deer, the Intercultural Women's Discussion Group (http://faculty.lagcc.cuny.edu/carolynsd/index.htm) website was created to foster online communication among female second language learners. Its primary purpose is communication and, particularly, to encourage communication among young immigrant females enrolled in college-level studies. IDA Mariam Abdallah designed the site.
Patricia M. Dillon, RN Nursing Program, developed a web-based module on fetal circulation for students in her SCR 270 Parent Child Nursing class. Complete with images and explanations of the process, this site provides students with an easy to use reference page, complete with links to other resources.

Michael Rodriguez (http://faculty.lagcc.cuny.edu/mirodriguez/default_.htm), faculty in the College's Fine Arts program, worked with IDA Benzene Garas to create a website replete with images of his acrylic on canvas paintings that can be viewed as animated images or as stills. The animated sequences allow for a more interactive experience for the viewer allowing the paintings to come to life in a manner only the computer can allow. The website also includes practical information such as information about upcoming exhibitions, an essay by art critic Tom Moody and a brief chronology of his studies and exhibitions.
 
Diane Nahas's School to Work Transitioning (http://faculty.lagcc.cuny.edu/dnahas) site is designed to establish convenient communication about curriculum content between instructor and current and past students anytime, any place. Materials on this site have been assembled in alignment with the Cooperative Education Department goal of helping students to prepare for the 21st century workplace. Information about economics, technology, career guidance and personality assessment, workplace conditions and cultural diversity is posted. Grateful thanks are extended to IDA Delwar Sayeed for his generosity and graciousness in making use of his computer expertise and artistic sensibility to envision and construct the design of this site.


Sparked by work done at other institutions, Phyllis van Slyck and Paula Nesoff led a group of eleven LaGuardia faculty interested in exploring the concept of teaching portfolios. Teaching portfolios may include course portfolio materials, but they also offer a larger, more holistic picture of a faculty member’s practice, including professional development projects and activities that have an impact on teaching and values that shape an individual faculty member’s curricular and pedagogical choices. To get a clearer idea what this trend is all about, check the Teaching Portfolio site (http://www.lagcc.cuny.edu/tps). Phyllis van Slyck, Abby Schoneboom and IDA Delwar Sayeed designed and developed the site.
				  

Less than a week after completing the Digital Storytelling Workshop offered by the LaGuardia Center for Teaching and Learning, Nya Naikyemi S. Odedefaa Manyansa (http://iyatala.blogspot.com) developed this site as a way of chronicling her travels throughout Egypt with primary researcher, Prof. Manu Ampim. Already this site is being used by several families who are homeschooling their children. Ms. Odedefaa Manyansa also plans to use this site for the African American Experience course she teaches at John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

In 2000, LaGuardia added the “common reading” to the First Year Experience program. The goals of having a common reading, a practice used by many colleges and universities, are to establish a greater sense of community among students and to provide an introduction to intellectual life at the college. To help students through the reading, and to provide a faculty forum for sharing ideas and activities, LaGuardia faculty developed websites including instructional materials, suggestions for activities, reading guides, etc. The Common Reading website content is designed by a different faculty member each year. Faculty site creators include: Jane Selden & Mary Fjeldstad (Having Our Say), J. Elizabeth Clark & Arthur Lau (When I Was Puerto Rican), Jane Holzka (West of Kabul, East of New York), Will Koolsbergen (The Laramie Project), Evelyn Burg and Paati Juza (Maus), George McCormack (Nickle and Dimed), and Ximena Gallardo (An Inconvenient Truth).

The faculty collaborated closely with Center staff on the content and technical aspects of each site. The common reading site for An Inconvenient Truth was designed by Priscilla Stadler with assistance from Ali Abdallah. Mr. Abdallah developed The Laramie Project, West of Kabul East of New York and Having Our Say sites. The When I Was Puerto Rican site was developed by Abby Schoneboom.
