SUNY Online Teaching Ambassador 2021: Monroe – Jacob Bodway

Jacob Bodway

Jacob Bodway

Jacob Bodway, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of English at Monroe Community College, where he has taught for eight years.  He received his doctorate from SUNY Buffalo, with a specialization in 18th century British aesthetics and moral philosophy.  His article, “The Matter of the Moral Sense: Shaftesbury and the Rhetoric of Tact” was published in Modern Philology (University of Chicago Press).

I became interested in online teaching as a graduate student and was one of the first to pilot online teaching software for SUNY Buffalo’s English Department.  Since then, I have gone on to teach many synchronous and asynchronous online and hybrid courses, with an emphasis on bringing the face-to-face experience into the digital classroom.  At Monroe Community College, I have been awarded numerous grants and instructional development stipends to build a catalogue of video lectures on English Composition, which are available to be uploaded to any online course at the college. I have been helpful in developing the online courses for the Accelerated Learning Program (ALP) at MCC and have presented my experience with ALP at numerous SUNY-wide conferences and Zoom meetings.  Currently, I am building an online master course for ALP, which can then be adopted by my colleagues in the English and Transitional Studies Departments.

In addition to my professional work, I am the President of the Western New York Mountain Bicycling Association (WNYMBA) and a member of the Chautauqua County Parks and Trails Commission.  I am currently seeking $300,000 in grant money to revitalize the Overland Trails in Chautauqua County.
