Committee Guide Addendum


The experience of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown has necessitated the need for the College to strengthen eLearning guidelines to for all faculty. The College looks to the Senate Committee on eLearning to investigate best practices and peer institutions’ policies (within and beyond CUNY) to inform the formal articulation of a comprehensive set of eLearning Guidelines.

The Committee is charged with:


  • The eLearning committee is involved in all matters related to virtual learning. The committee will report to the Academic Senate the development of and support for all forms of online instruction offered at QCC (FNT, PNT, asynchronous, synchronous, hybrid modalities).


  • Develop and disseminate guidelines, standards, and best practices in online instruction to the College


  • Provide standards for assessment of the quality of online course instructional designs, reviewing and revising these standards as needed.


  • Work with the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL), the Academic Development Committee (ADC), the Committee on Online Teaching, the Office of Educational Technology, and the Committee on Teaching Excellence Award (the Sandra Palmer Award) to develop and disseminate guidelines, standards, and best practices in online instruction to the College.


  • Work on the assessment process and criteria related to the eLearning program of the College and report findings to the Academic Senate


  • Serve as the faculty advisory body for the College’s program for certifying faculty for instruction in online modalities, as developed in conjunction with the Committee.


The Committee is also expected to:


  • Publish a bi-annual eLearning Newsletter for the QCC community featuring programs, trainings, methods, assessments, and other notable matters related to online learning that would assist in improving eLearning for faculty and students.
