CUNY MODES OF INSTRUCTION

A course instruction modality identifies how the class will be taught. The class may be held in-person, online, or a combination of both. The quality of courses should be de same, regardless of instruction modality; the focus should be on content, pedagogy, and assessment.

COURSE EVALUATION

Course evaluation strategies are important assets for every instructor as they help you gauge how the semester is going for your students and possibly provide guidelines for any course adjustments. In this section, we’ve presented a widely used Kirkpatrick’s Model for the evaluation of learning materials, the Hostos Online Learning (HOLA) Committee that presents the college-wide research on the online teaching and learning experiences of the Hostos community, and the peer-review resources.
