July 20, 2020
The Center for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT) has presented awards to four faculty members, for outstanding scholarship.
The winners are:
- Dr. Michael Figuccio, Psychology. Award for Innovative Pedagogy, in recognition of his work on service learning and e-service learning in the Psychology curriculum. He was the first faculty member in the department to offer service-learning opportunities in his Atypical Development course, and created e-service-learning opportunities in which students virtually mentor children with disabilities.
- Dr. Sayeedul Islam, Psychology. Award for Outstanding Faculty Mentorship, in recognition of his mentorship of student research in the Industrial/Organizational Psychology research lab. A recent graduate mentored by Dr. Islam stated: “My entire mentorship experience thus far with Dr. Islam has been valuable and unforgettable.”
- Dr. Bryan Field, Physics. Award for Outstanding Scholarly Publication in STEM, for his article, “Constructive Standard Model,” published in Physical Review D. Dr. Field says “this paper gives a concrete and explicit example of how to build particle interactions without a quantum field theory. This is the beginning of a large research agenda and is the first of its kind.”
- Dr. Ebru Ulusoy, Business Management. Award for Outstanding Scholarly Publication in Social Sciences or Humanities, for her article, “Inter-Generational Pendula (IGP): Toward a Theory of Immigrant Identity, Materialism and Religiosity.” Dr. Ulusoy says “this research investigates three central immigrant consumer values – materialism, religiosity, and ethnic identification – across multiple generations to develop a better understanding of the complex natures of immigrant populations and their adjustment to the host culture and economy.”
