The above video is from a brief overview that I gave to some of my colleagues at LaGuardia Community College. I was asked to talk about some of the work that I am doing in converting my lectures from a traditional classroom environment to an Online/hybrid setting.
The LaGuardia online/hybrid seminar is a year long group discussion sponsored by LaGuardia’s Center for Teaching and Learning to assist faculty into making the transition to online instruction.
The above footage is from an impromptu speech that I was asked to gave to a group of High School juniors and seniors during the Microsoft sponsored IT Tech Trends seminar held at LaGuardia Community College. The purpose of the seminar was to get high school students interested in IT careers. While it wasn’t my finest speech (I rambled a little bit), overall I think I did okay. The students seemed genuinely interested in what I had to say.
This was a presentation and panel discussion from the 10th Annual CUNY IT Conference held at John Jay College. The emerging nature of Digital Media has challenged universities to adapt to a rapidly changing landscape. Due to the evolution of these new disciplines, and the speed in which cross-disciplinary technical innovations are implemented in programs with a digital media focus, very few universal standards are in place for instruction and assessment.
In order to set the stage for the panel discussion, my presentation focused on what I believe are some of the major issues facing digital media programs within CUNY. The panel group, assembled from my colleagues from various CUNY institutions, discussed specific strategies that the university could implement to prepare our digital media programs for the future.
Panel participants included:
Assistant Professor of Humanities
New Media Technology Program Coordinator
LaGuardia Community College
Associate Professor of Media Arts and Technology
Borough of Manhattan Community College
Communications Technology Program Director
Assistant Professor of English
LaGuardia Community College
Senior Academic Technology Officer
ITP Certificate Program Coordinator
CUNY Graduate Center
This was from an event honoring me and other LaGuardia faculty for our recent publications. My article highlighted research on “Motivating at risk African American and Hispanic students through the study of New Media Technology“. The reception was held at LaGuardia Community College.
I was asked to present some of my recently published findings on motivating Black and Hispanic students to a cohort of new faculty at LaGuardia Community College. While the research for my presentation was originally focused on developing strategies for motivating Black and Hispanic students, the findings can be applied to students of all races and backgrounds.
