The First NSF LIKES Workshop at Santa Clara University

Presented by Wingyan Chung


Background
Background

  • Vision – to build a community that will lead the way to make systematic changes in the way computing concepts are integrated into various undergraduate disciplines

    • Goal 1: identifying problems / opportunities / needs in teaching computing concepts in non-CS disciplines

    • Goal 2: mapping computing concepts to the needs of these disciplines

  • A series of four workshops are held under the LIKES initiative


The scu likes workshop
The SCU LIKES Workshop

  • Theme: defining problems and identifying applications of the knowledge society

    • Held on Nov. 30 – Dec. 1, 2007, 8:30 am - 5 pm both days

    • Venue: Santa Clara University

      • Located in the San Francisco Bay area and Silicon Valley

      • The only LIKES workshop held on west part of the country

      • Workshop hotel, meeting rooms, and restaurants all located within walking distances, with free shuttle to/from airport

  • Keynote speakers

    • Larry A. Rowe, currently FXPAL President, formerly UC Berkeley EECS Professor – “Solving Problems with Tools and Collaboration”

    • James Frew, UC Santa Barbara – “Integrating Digital Libraries and Earth Science Data Systems”

  • Totally 34 participants from the east coast to Hawaii


Workshop deliverables
Workshop Deliverables

  • Mapping of Computing Concepts

    • Logic, data structure, HCI, DB, IP, SE, programming, algorithms, visualization, graphs and trees, etc.

    • Mapping of concepts to applications

  • Importance and Ease of Learning these concepts

    • Social context and IP rated to be most important and most easy to learn

    • Graphs and trees, modeling and simluation, and programming rated to be least important and least easy to learn

  • Concepts maps

Please read the workshop report for details


Summary
Summary

  • Identified concepts and problems in different disciplines

  • Identified disciplines that we can focus on in subsequent workshops

  • Fruitful first steps of the LIKES initiative

    • A group of scholars formed

    • Concepts, applications, disciplines

    • Participant satisfaction is generally high

    • Gained useful experience
