Dr. Gates and Nyack Honors Students present paper
Dr. Jonathan Gates, Chair of the Department of English, along with several Honors Delegates presented a paper at the 2011 National Collegiate Honors Conference in Phoenix, AZ
Each year over 2000 Honors Program directors, faculty, and students from across the United States gather to present student and faculty research, best honors practices, and explore timely issues at the National Collegiate Honors Conference. After years of success having poster projects selected through a highly competitive process, the Nyack College Honor’s program submitted their proposal for a General Session presentation and it was selected!
Dr. Gates, along with Honors Program students Courtney Soucek and Stephanie Leone co-presented “Beyond a Game: Creating an Immigration Simulation.” The conference program describes the presentation as follows: “Challenged to create a learning experience that would enable students far removed from the realities of illegal immigration to grapple with the impact of US policies and practices, the Nyack College Honors Program has developed a creative student-directed immigration simulation activity.”
The three co-presenters described and explained the year-long process of developing and conducting the simulation. During the presentation, the panel provided attendees with the design, challenges, and successes which prompted further questions and discussion. Upon their return, the Nyack Honors delegates reported the conference experience at the Honors Seminar to inspire and to inform current Honors students with an eye towards encouraging them to prepare for next year’s conference in Boston, MA.
