Shaw Faculty and Staff Selected to Participate in NYU Seminars

April 2, 2013 - Seven members of the Shaw University staff were selected to participate in the New York University Faculty Resource Network (NYUFRN) Summer 2013 Seminars.

The Faculty Resource Network (FRN) at New York University is an award-winning professional development initiative that sponsors programs for a consortium of over 50 colleges and universities. The Network hosts lectures, symposia, and intensive seminars, all of which are designed to improve the quality of teaching and learning at its member and affiliate institutions. Shaw University has been a member of the consortium for two years.

Each summer, more than 200 faculty members from FRN and affiliated institutions converge on New York University’s Washington Square campus for intensive seminars or independent research residencies that enhance and revitalize their teaching and scholarship. Within each program of study, a special emphasis is placed on teaching methodologies that will have a direct impact on the undergraduate curriculum and educational experience.

The following faculty and staff have been selected by the NYUFRN to attend the competitive Network Summer Seminars 2013:

  • Vonda Reed - Evidence-Based Biology Teaching
  • Renata Dusenbury - Play, Games, and Education in the Digital Age
  • James Kirkley - Understanding the New Europe: Immigration
  • Carmen V. Walker - Understanding the New Europe: Immigration
  • Rochelle King - Contemporary Black Women Writers
  • Jeffrey Smith - Reframing Gender: Men, Women, and the State
  • Marilyn Sutton-Haywood - Leadership in Fundraising

Two faculty members are on a waiting list due to the overwhelming number of applications received this year. They are:

  • Cheryl Kirk-Duggan - Contemporary Black Women Writers
  • Nakotey Hervie - Understanding the New Europe: Immigration
