Faculty Commons, A Center for Teaching, Learning, Scholarship and Service coordinates all professional development, grants and assessment activities of faculty at New York City College of Technology. Faculty Commons adopts a programmatic approach to professional development and operates as a faculty resource and think tank where members collaborate on a variety of projects to shape curriculum, pedagogy and assessment.
The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) helps faculty and administrators compete for and win grants that strengthen the intellectual climate and improve the learning environment at City Tech. The office provides notices of grant opportunities and works with faculty and administrators over the life-cycle of a grant – from concept development through close-out.
The Professional Activity Report and Self-Evaluation (PARSE) is the documentation of a faculty member’s accomplishments during each academic year and cumulatively, in the three principal areas of teaching, scholarly and professional growth, and service. The PARSE serves as the basis for the annual evaluation. It is also provides faculty with an instrument to present to departmental and college review committees for reappointment, tenure, and promotion.
High Performance Computing at Los Alamos Laboratories with Guest Speaker Dr. Gary Grider
December 8, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Los Alamos has helped the nation invent and manage the nuclear arsenal for eight decades. Computing at extreme scales has always been a primary tool for keeping the world safe. That same extreme computing is used for lots of other scientific pursuits like climate, national infrastructure, and even brain studies. This talk will provide an overview of Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and in particular High Performance Computing at LANL and how the world’s largest computers are built, maintained, and how they contribute to the science of the nation.
Dr. Gary Grider is currently the Deputy Division Leader of the High Performance Computing (HPC) Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory, where he is responsible for managing the personnel and processes required to stand up and operate major supercomputing systems, networks, and storage systems for the Laboratory for both the Department of Energy/National Nuclear Security Administration Advanced Simulation and Computing program and LANL institutional HPC environments.
