Professor Eric Sung

Professor Eric Sung has been appointed Program Director for the new minor in Business and Innovation, that is effective with the Class of 2020. The program consists of four tracks. The Design Thinking Track hones students’ visual and creative skills, enabling them to make meaningful contributions to industry, commerce, and their global context. This track gives students the tools of visual analysis and creative problem solving, allowing them to navigate a world inundated with visual media and data. The track combines introductory business skills, design, digital media, visual arts, computer graphics, and other electives that enable students to tap into the liberal arts and learn how to apply their skills in the business sector. For Computer Science majors there are several possible sub-tracks including App, Web and Data Warehousing Design. Professor Sung will also serve as Track 4 sponsor for Design Thinking. mastersung@providence.edu

2018 Arts and Sciences Dean’s Recognition Award

Thomas Strasser, Professor of Art History has received the 2018 Arts and Sciences Dean’s Recognition Award. This award is a tangible way to recognize often-overlooked contributions from our peers across the range of faculty professional activities in teaching, scholarship, or service.  All Ordinary, visiting, and adjunct faculty who have not already received a College recognition award were eligible to be nominated by their colleagues to receive a one-time monetary award in appreciation of a specific “unsung” achievement or contribution.

 

Bing Huang

2018 Recognition for Teaching Excellence: Innovation in Teaching
Bing Huang, Assistant Professor of Art History

Dr. Bing Huang, assistant professor of art history, is the recipient of the 2018 Innovation in Teaching Excellence award. The honor is given to a faculty member who has implemented outstanding innovative teaching approaches that increase student learning and success. Innovative teaching is defined broadly, but necessarily involves creative ways to engage students in the learning process.

Dr. Huang earned her bachelor’s degree in history from Shanghai University and a master’s degree in the history of art and architecture from the University of Cambridge. Recently, she earned her doctorate in the history of art and architecture from Harvard University. Dr. Huang specializes in Chinese art, and her research interests include the artistic and cultural exchange between Europe and East Asia and art and technology. Recently, she has cultivated interest in digital art history and examines the question of medium or media in recent art history theory and practice. She also has been working on virtual reality projects that demonstrate how immersive media technology and in-depth humanist research may be combined to enhance teaching.
Congratulations to Dr. Huang on this well-earned honor.
