Education Center on Computational Science & Engineering

Mission:

  • Foster the incorporation of high performance research

  • tools for scientific investigation into the undergraduate

  • curriculum to better prepare learners for post-Baccalaureate

  • activities where:

  • Collaborative, interdisciplinary teams,

  • Sophisticated computer tools and

  • Effective communication among the team members and with others

  • are used in research and problem solving.


Npaci ahm feb00 undergrad panel friday 8 30 10am

NPACI AHM Feb00Undergrad Panel Friday 8:30-10am

  • Excellent Opportunity for the NPACI Thrust Areas to Interact with EOT - Join the discussion

  • Funding Opportunities from PT3 - Let’s work together to show the impact that NPACI can have on education through modeling and visualization, SITE2000 this week

  • US Dept Education Preparing Tomorrow’s Teachers to use Technology http://www.ed.gov/teachtech

  • Contribute demonstrations that have been incorporated into a class lesson, module, even full curriculum


Ed center as campus change agent

Ed Center as Campus Change Agent

  • Hosting Biology Workbench workshop at SDSU July 28-30 to support Computational Biology

  • Met with Thrust Area groups Wednesday lunch share modules that you develop from your research that can be used as examples of “What NPACI does?” in the undergraduate curriculum

    • Your own teaching - or your RA - or your University peers

    • Presentations to general audiences on your research activities

  • Assessment - client then self-practitioner


Ec cse faculty fellows

EC/CSE Faculty Fellows

  • Challenges and strategies

  • building community of HPC users

  • undergraduate faculty and students

  • HSI hispanic-serving institution, exploration of faculty attitudes to computing in the classroom

  • Powerpoint slides vs. Realtime Simulation

  • NPACI naturally supports visualization and modeling - entry point for the curriculum


Faculty fellows during 1998 2000

Faculty Fellows during 1998-2000

  • Faculty Fellows representing four departments from four colleges: Geological Sciences, Geography, Computer Engineering, Business Information Systems

  • Bi-weekly meetings at the Ed Center

  • Faculty Fellows as “ambassadors” of computational science

  • Partnership with LEAD for evaluation during 1998-99

  • Follow-on Activities (Susan Millar, LEAD)

    • CATS (Classroom Assessment Techniques)

    • FLAG (Field-tested Learning Assessment Guide)

    • SALG (Student Assessment of Learning Gains)

Evaluation and assessment of classroom practice

Evaluation and Assessment of Classroom Practice

  • Student Surveys - Need a compatible tool for instructor to examine results with

  • Sociology WorkBench (SWB) developed by team of undergraduate computer science majors employed by the EC/CSE


Swb convenient tool to learn from student survey data

SWB Convenient Tool to Learn from Student Survey Data

  • Online tool for “standard public data sets” or your own data set http://edcenter.sdsu.edu

  • Small Sample, therefore only useful as feedback for the instructor

  • Can be used with “forms” interface directly into SWB format, as in June ‘99 CSU Faculty Workshop


Channels for influencing pre service teacher preparation

Channels for Influencing Pre-Service Teacher Preparation

  • Use of advanced computing modules in general ed courses (e.g. Geol 303 “Natural Hazards”)

  • Cooperation with College of Education faculty and students, esp. in Education Technology: focus on experimentation with new technologies in classroom setting

  • Computational Science Olympics: supporting the “bottom-up” development of computational science curricula

  • Providing on-line assessment technologies:
