NYIT Convocation Welcomes Faculty and Staff to the 2011-12 Academic Year



Old Westbury, N.Y.  (Sept. 1, 2011)
  ΜΆ   Popular video games like Angry Birds create a model of challenge, learning, and creativity that today’s educators must learn from, NYIT President Edward Guiliano, Ph.D., said today at the university’s 2011 Convocation.

President Guiliano challenged faculty to enrich their courses with technology, suggesting they provide students with all of the “flavors of learning,” including multi-media presentations, online forums, and educational challenges outside of the classroom.

“We need to harness technology to be as productive and efficient as possible so that our students are successful in problem-solving and critical thinking, and NYIT is a model of 21st-century engagement and education,” President Guiliano said.

As part of the annual convocation, he presented five faculty members with Presidential Technology Awards recognizing their creative and effective use of technology to enhance teaching, research, and service at NYIT.

In his speech to faculty and staff gathered in Riland Auditorium and streamed to the NYIT Auditorium on Broadway, President Guiliano also praised faculty members for their research and scholarship, congratulating them for helping move NYIT “up in class as a scholarly institution.”
