Become a SUNY Online Teaching Fellow

Step 1) Join the SUNY Online Community of Practice 

Tips for choosing your role:

  • “Interested” means you want to be informed about SUNY Online activities. This role is automatically approved.
  • “Experienced” means you have experience in instructional design and/or in supporting online teaching faculty and would like to be involved in supporting others by engaging in professional development activities. This role is automatically approved.
  • “Expert Instructional Designer,” “Exemplar, Coach and Mentor,” and “Innovator/Researcher” roles are all reviewed by the SUNY Online Teaching Community team for alignment of experience and background to each role before approval is sent.
  • You will receive notification when you have been approved as a SUNY Online Teaching Fellow.

Step 2) Participate in the SUNY Online Networking Community (open to anyone) or the SUNY Online Workplace group (for SUNY only).

  • You are asked to create a profile for yourself when your request to join is accepted.

After signing up for the SUNY Online Community, you can join the SUNY Online Community Call group, which is for instructional designers and other online practitioners from across SUNY:

As part of the Community Call Group, you can:

  • create new Discussion forums;
  • share documents and links;
  • use the Comments wall.
  • You can also configure your options for receiving e-mail or RSS feed from your Groups in your profile: choose My Page, Settings, Email.
  • As part of of the overall SUNY Online Community, you can also request to add a new group by going to the Group page and clicking the Add button.

Step 3) Sharing Best Practices

  • You can share best practice documents and other files as attachments to discussion posts and comment in the COTE Community Call Group.
  • In this group, there is also a page Librarian Community of Practice. The administrator for this page is Laura K. Murray of OLIS and she will keep the page populated with submissions from the community.
