Dr. Pauline Mosley holds a Bachelor of Science in Math and a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Mercy College; a Master of Science in Information Systems and a Doctorate of Professional Studies from Pace University. She embarked upon a teaching career in 1986, working as a top corporate trainer for Personal Computer Learning Centers of America, Inc. where she trained Fortune 500 executives and personnel in a myriad of software applications. She developed computer training manuals for Texaco, Pepsi, The Port Authority and McCraw-Hill and was influential in establishing PC and mainframe user-support help desks for Dannon, NYNEX, and Brooklyn Union Gas.
In 2000, she joined Pace University as a Lecturer and ascended the ranks quickly securing tenure in 2006 as an Associate Professor and then promoted to Full Professor of Information Technology in the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems in Pleasantville in 2012. She teaches undergraduate, graduate, and distance learning courses. The undergraduate courses are: Problem Solving Using LEGO robotics, Web Design For Non-Profit Organizations, and Internet and Network Security; graduate courses: Database Management Systems and Systems Analysis and Design; distance learning courses: Database Management Systems. Dr. Mosley’s research interests include utilizing robotics to teach problem-solving, computing, and cybersecurity concepts, on land and in water, as a pedagogical tool. A strong believer in K12 STEM education, she has designed curricula to engage, inspire, and captivate students to learn STEM. She has explored gender methodologies and best design-thinking practices that motivate and facilitate STEM learning and self-efficacy in and out of the classroom and establishing STEM-bridges with after school programs. Dr. Mosley is also a strong advocate for mentoring tenure-track and minority faculty throughout their academic careers.
Dr. Mosley has received research funding from the National Science Foundation, National Security Association, Thinkfinity and conducted research projects with Morgan State University, Tennessee State University, Juxtopia, and the US Navy in systems engineering, design, virtual and augmented reality, advanced manufacturing, and minority engineering education. Recently, she was awarded a GenCyber grant enabling her to develop a cybersecurity camp for high school students in collaboration with the US Navy. Attendees of this camp learned how to create SeaPerch robots layered with cameras to cipher encrypted codes. She has received several awards for teaching, research, mentoring and is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, Inc. (IEEE) and frequently serves on the program committee of national conferences in Information Technology. Journals in which her research has appeared include The Journal of Computing Sciences in Colleges, International Journal of Across The Disciplines and The Academic Exchange Quarterly. Recently, she authored a book entitled: Navigating the Academy- A Guide for Women and Minority Faculty. An active community member she serves on the following boards: YWCA, GIRLS Academy, Westchester County Youth Bureau, The Youth Mission of Life Church Board, and The Lois Bronz Children’s Center.
The future of higher education continues to be challenged by several internal and external factors that will determine its true educational value, impact on quality of life, and digital tools for learning.These elements will be transformed by the issues of accountability, fiscal sustainability, learning methodologies, student readiness, and academic leadership. We believe the key to […]
