The DNA of Pace University
Join the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology (CTLT) at this year’s 11th annual Faculty Institute on May 17 and 18 on Pace’s Westchester Campus. This year’s theme, The DNA of Pace University: Collaboration and Innovation, is focused on the development of partnerships between faculty, staff, administrators, and students, as well as the promotion of collaboration among members of the Pace Community.
On day one, keynote speaker Victor E. Ferrall, president emeritus of Beloit College and author, will discuss the challenges facing liberal arts colleges today. Also planned for the day are sessions presented by the Faculty Research Forum, whose goals this year were to increase faculty publication rates and promote interdisciplinary collaboration, and the Pforzheimer Center for Faculty Development, which will share their work from the past year.
The second day of the Institute will be dedicated to addressing the innovations and collaborations currently happening at the University in the forms of interdisciplinary teaching, research, and the use of new technologies. The day’s keynote speaker, Marc Prensky, is an internationally acclaimed writer, speaker, and innovator in the field of education. Additionally, a panel presentation by representatives from each of Pace’s colleges and schools is also planned for the second day of the Institute. The Panel is set to present their own initiatives which best exemplify the theme of Collaboration, Innovation, and Research.
