Open Your Research Without Opening Your Wallet, Janelle L. Wertzberger Nov 2015

Open Your Research Without Opening Your Wallet, Janelle L. Wertzberger

Janelle Wertzberger

Open scholarship promotes sharing and collaboration, increases readership, and amplifies impact. It is gaining traction as institutions, professional associations, and funding agencies encourage or require broad sharing of research results. Yet many authors believe that the only way to open their work is to pay publishers thousands of dollars for the privilege. Luckily for us, that just isn’t the case. Come hear about a range of ways to open your research without paying for the privilege! Lunch provided. (Limited seating, RSVP to jwertzbe@gettysburg.edu)

Knowledge Mapping Tools: Visualizing Research, Crystal L. Renfro, Elisabeth Shields Oct 2015

Knowledge Mapping Tools: Visualizing Research, Crystal L. Renfro, Elisabeth Shields

Crystal L Renfro

Complex research projects can be difficult to conceptualize and communicate clearly because of the number of concepts involved and the relationships among them. We will look at visual tools including concept maps, mind maps and argument maps which help advanced students, faculty, and librarians as they move from the stage of envisioning a research idea into the early stages of fashioning the product.


Evaluating A Linked-Courses Learning Community For Development Majors, Amber Settle, John Lalor, Theresa Steinbach Sep 2015

Evaluating A Linked-Courses Learning Community For Development Majors, Amber Settle, John Lalor, Theresa Steinbach

Amber Settle

Despite a rebound in enrollments, men of color and women remain underrepresented in computing. The literature indicates that student-student interaction and affinity for the computing major are important factors for retention of underrepresented groups in computing, and learning communities connect students with each other and faculty to improve collaboration, interaction, enthusiasm. Despite their long history and promise for addressing retention, computing-focused learning communities remain rare. Here we present an evaluation of a linked-courses learning community for men of color and women majoring in a development-focused area of computing. We measure student attitudes and affinity for their major via a survey ...


Information Technology And Computer Science Programs: How Do We Relate?, Bonnie K. Mackellar, Gregory Hislop, Mihaela C. Sabin, Amber Settle Sep 2015

Information Technology And Computer Science Programs: How Do We Relate?, Bonnie K. Mackellar, Gregory Hislop, Mihaela C. Sabin, Amber Settle

Amber Settle

In this panel session, the relationship between computer science programs and information technology programs at universities that house both will be explored. People outside the computing disciplines often find the distinction between these programs confusing. The panelists, who have experience with both types of program, will discuss strategies for differentiating the programs in the eyes of administrators, for advising students into the correct program, and for maintaining focus and excellence in both computer science and information technology programs.

Incorporated into the session will be best practices in tutorial creation.


Saint Mary’S Collegiate Seminar: Re-Envisioning A Venerable Great Books Program For The 21st Century, Jose A. Feito Aug 2015

Saint Mary’S Collegiate Seminar: Re-Envisioning A Venerable Great Books Program For The 21st Century, Jose A. Feito

Jose Alfonso Feito

For nearly three quarters of a century, the Collegiate Seminar Program has been the cornerstone of the general education requirement at Saint Mary’s College of California, a Catholic liberal arts university with approximately 2800 undergraduates. Over the past eight years, the College has been immersed in a process of collaboratively re-envisioning its entire core curriculum, including the Seminar Program.   We have endeavored to facilitate a democratic, inclusive and transparent community process which respects the values and traditions of our institution while also identifying and integrating best practices from across the nation. In multiple formats, the process has highlighted collective ...

Forging Ahead To College: Latino And African American Students’ Experiences With Their Former School Counselors, Amy Cook, Arthur Mccann Jul 2015

Forging Ahead To College: Latino And African American Students’ Experiences With Their Former School Counselors, Amy Cook, Arthur Mccann

Arthur McCann

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, a student drops out of school every nine seconds, with Latino and African American students being disproportionately represented. A survey-based study conducted with a diverse group of college students regarding experiences with their former high school counselor revealed evidence-based interventions that could be implemented with Latino and African American students to promote college attainment. This session will provide you with the knowledge to address impediments that Latino and African American students encounter and how to promote college access. Discussion and sharing information about various school counselor practices will be encouraged.

Simulations In Prisons, Kim Read Jun 2015

Simulations In Prisons, Kim Read

Kim Read

As society has moved online, prison education has significantly lagged behind, hampering efforts to prepare released prisoners for work, education, and life outside a prison cell. Prisons have lacked the technology and educational programming to ready inmates for reintroduction into a digital society. This paper explores the benefits and challenges of eLearning in prisons and the role simulations could play in reducing recidivism and preparing released inmates for a technology-driven world.


A Computer Science Linked-Courses Learning Community, Amber Settle, John Lalor, Theresa Steinbach Jun 2015

A Computer Science Linked-Courses Learning Community, Amber Settle, John Lalor, Theresa Steinbach

Amber Settle

Previous work has shown that factors such as student engagement and involvement can impact progress for computer science majors. One promising approach for improving student engagement is learning communities, which have a long history in academia but are relatively uncommon in computing. In this article we describe a linked-courses learning community for women and men of color majoring in development-focused computing degrees. We provide logistical information about the first offering of the learning community and assess the effectiveness of the community via a student survey. Our results show that students in the learning community are more likely to report that ...

Meeting Patrons At The Point Of Need: Envisioning A Just-In-Time Repository For Oregon Libraries, Kim Read, Lori Wamsley Apr 2015

Meeting Patrons At The Point Of Need: Envisioning A Just-In-Time Repository For Oregon Libraries, Kim Read, Lori Wamsley

Kim Read

What if libraries across Oregon shared a repository of how-to instructional videos and tutorials? What if patron questions like, “How do I download an eBook?” could be answered by a slick two-minute video that any library using the same eBook platform could embed at the point-of-need? With an eye towards design thinking, performance support, instructional design, creative collaboration, and technology wrangling, these are the questions that we’ll address in this active discussion. Together, we’ll envision what instructional content could best be shared among Oregon libraries and how point-of-need resources could support library patrons at all different types of ...

What's In Your Institutional Repository?, Frances Rice, Nichole M. Rustad Feb 2015

What's In Your Institutional Repository?, Frances Rice, Nichole M. Rustad

Frances E. Rice

This session focuses on digital collections at the University of Dayton Libraries and how it has evolved from using a stand-alone digital asset management system (CONTENTdm) to a flexible, robust, open-access institutional repository solution hosted by Berkley Electronic Press (Bepress). We share our trials and errors from our first digitization initiatives that began in 2006, to the launch of our first digital collection using CONTENTdm in 2010, to the implementation of our IR, eCommons, in 2013. We demonstrate how we have transformed our IR into a digital platform that not only features faculty scholarship, but also highlights our special collections ...


Reconsidering The Impact Of Cs1 On Novice Attitudes, Amber Settle, John Lalor, Theresa Steinbach Feb 2015

Reconsidering The Impact Of Cs1 On Novice Attitudes, Amber Settle, John Lalor, Theresa Steinbach

Amber Settle

Student success in an introductory programing course is crucial, both because it influences retention and because student attitudes and habits in a first course can have a lasting impact on student success in computer science as a field. In this paper we present results about student attitudes and habits before and after a CS1 class. Statistically significant attitude differences were found in three areas: students were less likely to report they were good at programming, more likely to agree they are challenged by programming problems they can't understand immediately, and are less likely to report that computer science allows ...

The goal of the study was to gain deeper insight into the perspectives of teachers and administrators in Catholic elementary schools in an Archdiocese in the Midwest participating in a state-funded voucher program.


The Corporate Shell Game Presentation, J.S. Nelson Feb 2015

The Corporate Shell Game Presentation, J.S. Nelson

J.S. Nelson

This presentation on The Corporate Shell Game identifies for the first time the hardening of the corporate shell. It provides compelling evidence that shell-hardening pushes and disguises the way that corporations and agents commit large-scale wrongdoing, and it traces the contributing legal streams that protect the agents who engage in this behavior. The only way to combat widespread frauds that inflict damage on the public is for the corporate shell to become less opaque.
