Message from Wade Pickren, PhD
Director, Sponsored Research

Saturday, November 1, 2014 –8:30 am – 4:00 pm – CNS 208

The theme of the PKAL Upstate Regional Network fall meeting at Ithaca College is the use of a multidisciplinary approach and sustainability themed questions to enhance student understanding of 21st century problem solving. 

The methods presented may be applicable to making connections between ICC courses.  Although the focus of the workshop is STEM, the MSE project methods apply to any discipline-based course that wants to make meaningful connections to other courses in any other discipline sharing a common theme. 

Morning session speakers will be Dr. Jason Hamilton and Dr. Thomas Pfaff and will examine the need for developing 21st century problem solvers and a framework for connecting disciplines through sustainability themed questions.
