December 2010 Archives

The New Brunswick Summer Session office is offering grants of $1500 for the development of "hybrid" courses that have a reduced amount of classroom time supplemented by online meetings and course work. 

Applications for these grants are due on January 5th, and must be submitted by department chairs. More details are on the Summer Session Hybrid Course Development page.

Newark Dec 20 - Accessing Blackboard

One of the links to the Newark Blackboard site is not working this morning. Please use instead. 

[Update - everything is fixed now, is working again]

Fall Surveys completed

The majority of online Student Instructional Rating Surveys have now completed (only a small number of courses have surveys that are still running until the end of exams). Students who did not respond to the survey before the end date cannot participate, although they may choose to write directly to deans or department chairs to express their opinion. 

We will distribute the survey reports for the online surveys to faculty, instructors, and department administrators beginning on January 5. Results will be published on the Student Instructional Rating Survey Results web site on February 28.

For surveys conducted on paper we will distribute results over the summer, after all paper surveys have been scanned and processed. 

Schedule your test scanning now

Instructors who intend to scan their multiple choice exams using the scanner in our office should schedule their scanning time as soon as possible by calling 732-932-7466. The calendar fills up quickly, and is often booked solid every day during finals.
