Examining the Spectrum
The first in a series of Pace-wide research lectures addresses the field of autism research and interdisciplinary program development
Pace University is an institution of esteemed learning, research, and scholarship, and on November 20 from 12:15 p.m. to 1:05 p.m., faculty and staff are invited to the first Pace-wide research lecture and Q&A.
Not only will this Provost-sponsored lecture series give the Pace Community an opportunity to get to know and learn from our colleagues, but it also gives us the opportunity to generate ideas for joint research. The first lecture in the series was chosen on the basis that it covers nearly all disciplines at Pace. It is a subject of great interest to many people who have encountered this disorder in their families and the research of the presenter, Dianne Zager, PhD, is internationally renowned.
The first lecture, Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Fertile Field for Research and Program Development Across Disciplines, will be presented by Dyson Professor Dianne Zager, PhD, the Michael C. Koffler Professor of Autism at Pace University.
The presentation will be broadcasted Pace-wide from Videoconference Room 319 in NYC (with lots of seating), to Videoconference Room Miller 16 in PLV, and to Videoconference Room 511 in the Graduate School in White Plains.
This year, the institute will examine literacies across the disciplines and how the creation of a collaborative student community can unify Pace’s diverse campus.
