CircleIn

You should have already received email from CityTech about this CircleIn platform. Here’s the info I received via an email to faculty:

CircleIn is an app available to all City Tech students which supports peer-to-peer mentoring and the development of effective study habits. All students in a section can use it to connect with each other. Faculty do not participate in CircleIn discussions but can review what students in their class are asking questions about to assess if more focus is needed on topics that students seem to be struggling with.

And here is a 5 Minute Overview video:

You should be able to login via your CityTech email:

  • Visit the Student App Website: app.circleinapp.com
  • Search for “City Tech – New York City College of Technology”
  • Click on “First Time Here? Activate Your Account
  • Enter your “.edu” City Tech email address
  • An email will be sent – Click on the Link in the email to create your password

Sounds like this app may be useful for connecting with your classmates and facilitating conversations about the class! 

CityTech PLAN Week (March 1-4)

FYI:

This coming week (Mon March 1 – Fri March 5), the Student-Ready College Committee has put together a series of workshops, informational sessions, and seminars to help CityTech students towards the goal of graduating with a degree.  This is called PLAN Week (Prepare to Locate an Advisor Now).  This OpenLab link provides information and registration links for the workshops:

Here is more information, via an OpenLab site called The Open Road:

PLAN Week is upon us at City Tech!

This week, from March 1 to March 5, students can come together for daily events to help them plan different aspects of their future (and present) at City Tech and beyond. Learn about each day’s events and register for as many as you can fit in your schedule. The week includes get-togethers on the following topics:

PLAN your Education

PLAN your Registration

PLAN for Remote Learning

PLAN your College Finances

PLAN for Success

There are also sessions to meet with peer mentors, and get support from counseling services, among other topics.

The event’s organizers describe the goals of the sessions: “to guide students to seek academic advisement, be directed to degree maps, offered workshops and success seminars, as well as virtual get-together sessions to develop an academic and professional identity through experiences beyond the classroom.”

These get-togethers will give students a chance to hear from faculty, staff, and students about these important topics, and to meet other students.

It’s no surprise that guiding students is a primary goal of PLAN Week–it’s part of The Guide, a site on the OpenLab that houses information for students about a wide variety of topics important for success in courses and at college. Want to know more about City Tech’s Guide? You can visit the project on the OpenLab and also read an earlier In the Spotlight about City Tech Guide’s offerings.
