Claire Shulman Honored
Queensborough Community College
The decision to name the new state-of-the-art
multimedia laboratory at Queensborough Community College the
Claire Shulman Educational Technologies Center was
perfectly inspired. After all, the former Queens Borough President
had worked to secure funding for the facility and has long
been an ardent supporter of CUNY's mission on its Queens campuses.
The Center, which will be vigorously deployed in the training
of new teachers for the city and region, was dedicated on the
Bayside campus in October. QCC President Eduardo Marti praised
Shulman on the occasion for aiding the College's "continued
growth throughout her tenure." She is seen here on the
occasion, with QCC mathematics professor Patrick Wallach, at
rear, demonstrating the Centeràs bells and whistles.
The facility's one instructoràs station and 24 student
stations will serve the Dual/Joint Education Program with Queens
College, whose students have declared their intention to become
teachers. The Center will be able to integrate DVD videos, offer
PowerPoint presentations, Web sites and animation simultaneously.
Video-conferencing will also be possible at the Center. Live
sessions can also be videotaped at the Center and disseminated
on the QCC Web site and to public libraries in Queens.
