CRLT - Collaborative Research in Learning Technologies This is a one-year NSF planning grant that involves 3 co-Principal Investigators (co-PI's). Besides myself, they are: Dr. Ed Dubinsky from our department and Dr. Karen Schultz who is an associate dean in the College of Education. There are also two graduate students: Jennifer Kleiman and Stanley Punnoose. In this project, we are setting up a collaborative research program based on the ACE Teaching Cycle. Essentially, this involves the use of computers to help students learn (mathematics, for now) and the establishment of groups of students and tutors for the purpose of fostering better understanding of concepts and ideas.
The second project is called IPCURT which stands for Integrating Pedagogical and Curriculum Theory with Teaching Practices. This is a one-year internally funded GSU Team Grant. There are 10 GSU faculty involved with more possible in later phases if this continues to receive additional support. Four faculty are from Math/CSc, three from the College of Education, and one each from the Learning Support Center, the Chemistry department, and the Geology department. This project is looking at what works in the mathematical sciences courses with the hope of assisting instruction throughout all mathematics and science courses in th College of Arts and Sciences. An important component will devising ways to evaluating effects of innovative techniques.
The third is entitled "Research into the Design, Development, and Network Delivery of Hypermedia Systems" which is funded through the Chancellor's Initiative Fund Program. This is a three-year program which seeks to make available on-line various educational and research materials related to the courses and programs in our department. Dr. Scott Owen is the PI and three other CSC professors, inluding myself, serve as co-PI's.
