I am reaching out to you to see if you can recommend any possible instructor for three Fall 2019 media-related classes that we currently cannot find someone to teach. These course historically have been taught by adjunct instructors, each of whom have scheduling conflicts for the Fall semester. The courses are being offered at Rose Hill (RH) campus in the Bronx (441 East Fordham Road, Bronx, NY 10458).
CISC2350-R01, Information and Web Programming, at RH campus, MR 5:30-6:45pm
CISC2540-R01, Introduction to Video Game Design, at RH campus, MR 4:00-5:15pm
CISC4650-R01, Cyberspace: Issues and Ethics, at RH campus, TF 1:00-2:15pm
The description for each course is provided below. I think typical alumni from your program would be good fits for the class. We are eager for any recommendation, and welcome interested alumni of your program to contact us.
CISC 2350. Information and Web Programming. (4 Credits)

CISC 2540. Introduction to Video Game Design. (4 Credits)
This course provides a gentle and fun introduction to the design and production of computer-based video games, for students with no prior programming experience. Students will learn principles of game design, and apply them to create an actual computer game.

CISC 4650. Cyberspace: Issues and Ethics. (4 Credits)
The impact of computer information and communication technology on the way people act, think, live, behave and communicate will be studied. Students will be given hands-on experience of the Internet.
