Discussion Questions

Teaching in a Digital World

Teaching, Learning, and Technology Center (TLTC) - The Teaching, Learning, and Technology Center is a place where faculty can find the conversation about the ever-changing use of technology in teaching and learning

Americans with Disabilities Act - basic background information on ADA and regulations

Universal Design for Learning - basic background information on UDL

20 Best Practices and Expectations in Online Teaching - Tips from Canvas

Attendance in Online Classes - This website contains a list of methods for recording attendance in an online course

The resources below were culled from the web by former Faculty Center Graduate Assistant Cassie Carl. Cassie is enrolled in one of our online programs and has noted under each resource the value she finds in it as an online student.

15 Rules of Netiquette for Online Discussion Boards - It’s very basic, but I have also been on enough discussion boards where folks have no idea what they’re doing that it might be necessary.

Student Discussion Board Tweet - This might be a little saucy for some profs, but I also fully support putting people on blast for their discussion board nonsense.

Writing for Discussion Boards - This document I think is one of the more helpful and academic I’ve found. It also focuses specifically on college discussion boards rather than generalized netiquette.

Excelsior Online Writing Lab - Discussion Board Content  - This is a mildly interactive resource that breaks down a few example comments and explains what’s good/bad about them.

Faculty and Staff
When the lights are turned down, music is turned up and models hit the catwalk for the Student Fashion Society’s Spring Fashion Show at SUNY Oneonta each year, Associate Professor of Fashion and Textiles Annacleta Chiweshe is the one cheering the loudest. “It gives me a lot of satisfaction when I see students learning the skills I teach them and producing something unique,” she said.
Snapper Petta
Faculty and Staff
Every day that doesn’t begin with ‘S,’ Snapper Petta and his assistant, Juneau, pack up their things and make their way at about 8:30 a.m. to 459 Hulbert Hall, home of SUNY Oneonta’s Outdoor Adventure Office. On Friday, Jan. 17, they will do this for the last time, as Snapper is retiring after 40 years with the college.
