Biography


Dr. Pauline Mosley 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. 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. 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. Dr. Mosley is also a strong advocate for mentoring tenure-track and minority faculty throughout their academic careers. Hence, in 2015 she authored a book entitled: Navigating the Academy- A Guide for Women and Minority Faculty.

RESEARCH INTEREST


Dr. Mosley's research interests include utilizing robotics to teach problem-solving, computing, and cyber-security 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 afterschool programs. Dr. Mosley has worked with the White Plains GIRLS Academy and the White Plains YMCA GEMS Afterschool Program for the past six years in shaping and cultivating their STEM curriculum component. She has exposed these girls to LEGO Mindstorms, drones, and SeaPerch (water robotics). Recently, Dr. Mosley has launched an innovative STEM-4 Homework Help Afterschool Program which focuses on self-efficacy, study skills, stamina, and STEM-enrichment at the Slater Center located in White Plains. She has mentored several New Rochelle High School students who have desired to do a WISE Project in lieu of graduation and has worked closely with K-12 Westchester schools in helping their STEM faculty integrate innovative STEM curricula within their respective disciplines.
