Barbara Vokatis presents at conference on Technology, Knowledge and Society

Barbara Vokatis from the Department of Elementary Education and Reading and her colleague from the University at Albany, Jianwei Zhang, presented in a round table discussion at the Fourteenth International Conference on Technology, Knowledge and Society, at St. John’s University (Manhattan Campus), in New York City, on March 2.

The title of the presentation was: “Building Knowledge through Literacy and Technology in Cross-community Interaction.” This study aims to provide the description of an example of scientific knowledge building, through literacy, to inform implementation of new learning standards. It also aims to inform researchers’ and practitioners’ knowledge of literacy development in the area of the roles of literacy in building knowledge to contribute to developing the much-needed connection between literacy research and knowledge building.

Seminar Series in Biology to offer conservation presentation

The Seminar Series in Biology will present “Planning for climate resilience: new strategies to conserve land in the Hudson Valley” by Nava Tabak, Director of Science, Climate, & Stewardship at Scenic Hudson.

This seminar is hosted by the Biology Department and will take place Friday, March 16, at 4 p.m. in Science I, room 121.

In this presentation, Tabak will discuss ongoing land conservation efforts in the Hudson Valley undertaken by Scenic Hudson, an environmental advocacy and land conservation organization that employs strategic planning to maximize its land protection efforts.

Her work focuses on biodiversity conservation, ecological restoration and stewardship, and promoting climate resilience in the Hudson Valley. She provides science-based guidance for the organization’s stewardship of parks and preserves, land use and policy advocacy efforts, and land protection priorities. She also works with waterfront communities along the Hudson River Estuary to improve their climate resilience by adapting to both present and future coastal flood risks.  

This series is offered several times throughout the semester to provide our student community with opportunities to learn about scientific research and professions. Speakers may include our own department faculty or students, as well as biologists and other professionals from elsewhere. All are welcome.
