Engaging Students in the Global Century
The New York Institute of Technology announces its sixth interdisciplinary conference, "Engaging Students in the Global Century." Scholars from a range of disciplines are invited to interpret the theme broadly for this one-day conference at NYiT's Columbus Circle campus on Friday, March 19, 2010.
The conference, as in past years, will draw scholars from around the country and world for panel discussions, featured speakers, and lively conversation. Keynote speakers, such as author Mark Kurlansky, sociologist Saskia Sassen, and historians Marta Gutman and Kenneth T. Jackson, have added to the depth of past conferences.
Possible themes for papers:
· Strategies and experiences related to incorporating Web 2.0 technologies, including Wikis, social networking sites, blogs, and virtual reality platforms, into the undergraduate classroom
· New ideas in instructional design and teaching strategies for online learning
· Plans for developing and implementing successful undergraduate research programs, particularly in the humanities and arts
· Addressing students as global citizens and creating community across global campuses
· Problems and solutions connected to collaborative learning
· Critiques and questions related to new technologies, intergenerational dynamics, or ethical concerns involved with 21st-century teaching and learning.
Please send a 500-word abstract and C.V. to Jennifer Griffiths at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15, 2010.
