NYIT hosts sixth annual interdisciplinary symposium

New York, N.Y. (March 22, 2010) – New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) hosted its sixth annual interdisciplinary symposium, “Engaging Students in the Global Century,” on Friday, March 19, 2010, at its Manhattan campus.

The symposium served as an exchange of new ideas, initiatives, and technologies in higher education. Presentations focused on addressing how to successfully engage international students in American-style education.

“This symposium attracts people who are passionate about sharing ideas and information on cutting-edge technologies, curriculum, and other creative methods in higher education,” said Roger Yu, dean of NYIT’s College of Arts and Sciences.

The symposium included a number of presentations led by prestigious leaders in education from NYIT, Columbia University, Utah Valley University, and William Paterson University. The session, “Engaging Students in College Literacy: The Nanjing Experience,” presented personal accounts of teaching abroad from NYIT professor Gary Stephens and adjunct professor Margaret Stacey. They shared specific successes and challenges faced when they taught students at NYIT’s campus in Nanjing, China. In addition, Ryan Kelsey and Ashlinn Quinn, from Columbia Center for New Media Teaching and Learning at Columbia University, presented “Lessons Learned from a Three-Year Curriculum and Technology Design Experiment in a Global Synchronous Course.”  

Technology’s impact on higher education was a prevalent theme throughout the symposium, and presenters identified and discussed resources such as blogs, Facebook, and YouTube that connects campuses with one another.
