Teaching Fellows: Cohort 28

Announcements

Welcome, Cohort 28! Please familiarize yourself with this page, as it contains a wealth of information for your time with us.  The first section below is information for your entire cohort, with subsequent sections specialized for each particular program. We look forward to working with you.

INFORMATION FOR ALL COHORT 28 FELLOWS

Obtaining a CCNY ID

You will need a valid CCNY ID to access our campus (e.g., to get into building, use the library, and check out media equipment).  To obtain an ID, please visit the ID office in NAC 1/205B.  Hours are Monday through Thursday 10am-4:45pm.

Obtaining a CCNY email address

You must communicate with CCNY staff and faculty using your CCNY CityMail address.  Please make a practice of always including your program (i.e., TESOL, SPED), cohort number, and your CUNYfirst EMPLID and first and last name when you email anyone at CCNY, as this practice will ensure a faster response to your inquiries.  

Additionally, important updates regarding class cancellations, room changes, and more will be communicated to you via your CityMail account, so check this address frequently.  Set up the account.

Claiming your CUNYfirst Account

You will use CUNYfirst to register for classes each semester. You will also use to to drop or swap classes. It will also show where classes can be located and who will teach those classes. Plus, you will use it to check your grades and unofficial transcripts.  Your EMPLID is your unique, 8-digit student ID number. Please memorize it and make sure to include it on all official documents and in all emails when you communicate with anyone who works at CCNY.  Directions to claim your CUNYfirst account.

Registering for Spring 2017

We will provide you with details for this later this semester. Apart from this semester, you are the only person who can register yourself for classes.  You can find the courses you will take in the spring in your program information below.

DASA

We will provide you with DASA training at some point this semester.  Exact details will be shared shortly.  DASA is required for everyone in order to begin teaching. If you’ve already completed DASA, please make sure your completion certificate is posted in your TEACH account.

Taskstream

A Taskstream account is required for most, if not all, semesters in which you will be enrolled at CCNY.  We recommend you choose a 2-year package, as this is the most cost effective package for you.  You are required to have your Taskstream account active in the Spring 2017 semester as a part of your student teaching course (though your fall classes may also require you to sign up for Taskstream).  When you sign up  make sure to choose the correct major.

Blackboard

Blackboard may be required for specific courses.  Instructors can use Blackboard to share articles or announcements to your course.  Blackboard accounts are free.  Information for setting up the Blackboard account.

Advisement/Transcript Review

You have until the end of your time at CCNY to complete any missing liberal arts credits and/or educational prerequisites that may be required for the completion of your program. The courses/credits you will need depend upon previously completed credits, as reflected on your transcripts. These requirements must be completed at the financial cost of the fellow.  CCNY personnel will be conducting an official review of your transcript in the coming months, and we will provide you with a letter detailing your specific requirements by the end the semester. This is simply an initial review, and if you believe you have actually met these requirements, you may ask your adviser to review your transcript in greater depth once you receive the initial review.
