Academic Technology Research and Development Group

Welcome to the home of the CUNY Committee on Academic Technology Research and Development Group (CAT-R&D).

The mission of CAT-R&D is to research, test, and recommend new technologies from the perspective of classroom faculty needs and pedagogical effectiveness.

CAT-R&D exists to advance the field of academic technology by consulting with colleagues and groups developing new technologies, conducting classroom trials, and sponsoring programs. The goal is to provide independent evaluations using transparent criteria that are openly reported on the CUNY Academic Commons, at the annual CUNY IT conference, and to other bodies.

CAT-R&D fosters academic excellence by working with researchers, educators, and developers to create an academically enriching environment for students and faculty.
The CAT-R&D is to be known as the “skunkworks” and the reason for this can be found here

January 15th Forum about Instructional Technology at CUNY

  • Dear Colleagues–

    For many of us involved with the planning, testing and implementation of instructional technologies throughout CUNY, CCNY is hosting an event on January 15th, from 11:30 am- 2:30 pm, that you’re welcome to attend.

    Entitled, “Navigating the Sea of Instructional Technologies at CUNY: A Forum for Instructional Technologists,” the idea is to have an open discussion among technologists, faculty, faculty developers and others interested in instructional technology within CUNY. Some questions include:

    –What role do instructional technologies play in teaching and learning at CUNY?
    –How can campuses keep up with a torrent of new tools, services, and technologies for teaching/learning?
    –What role can CUNY play in assisting campus technologists?

    The attached flyer provides both details and a link to register. I hope that you can attend. Please pass this along to others at your college who might also have an interest.

    All the best…Bruce Rosenbloom, CCNY Director of CETL
