Faculty Affairs

Instructional Continuity

Spring 2021 courses will primarily be taught through distance learning. Faculty Affairs staff and resources will be provided remotely, as nearly all BMCC staff continue to work from home.

BMCC E-Learning Center and CETLS have created Course Continuity and Emergency Preparedness websites with tutorials, training materials, and tools to support and prepare faculty for possible course disruption. It includes teaching approaches during emergencies, including the Resilient Teaching workshop, how to transfer an in-person course to Blackboard, how to use Zoom Web Conferencing, and other useful information.

CUNY sends out periodic updates on Academic Continuity–items relating to faculty and instruction are collated on the CUNY Faculty Affairs website.

BMCC Faculty Affairs

Faculty are at the heart of the learning community that is BMCC. Faculty teach and mentor students, conduct research and scholarly inquiry, help lead the college, and serve the community. The college is committed to helping the full-time and part-time faculty grow and innovate in order to reach their full potential and help students learn.

Just as we believe that learning is a lifelong activity, professional development is an ongoing effort. BMCC has several programs and resources to help faculty to engage in ongoing learning activities for any and all of their activities. See the links on the left to explore BMCC programs. The links on the right are resources for the University and other outside organizations.
