2 ActionWebs Kickoff Meeting– December 17, 2009 Education Goals and Objectives Education, K. Gates OUR GOAL IS TO: Drive academic course development and improvement through research; Provide undergraduate and graduate students with research and learning opportunities; Disseminate teaching materials to a broader community.
3 ActionWebs Kickoff Meeting– December 17, 2009 Cyber-Physical System Science (CPSS) will influence the way we teach and how we develop new course Integration of Research into CPSS Education and Outreach Education, K. Gates Education Material Refining existing– make new Outreach Mentoring Post-Docs Curriculum Development
4 ActionWebs Kickoff Meeting– December 17, 2009 Curriculum Development CPSS Research CPSS New Core Courses Undergraduate Courses CPSS Modules Course Electives Education, K. Gates Revamping of Control and Embedded System @ UCB [Tomlin, Lee] Modules fit into existing ME, CE, AA courses [UCB] Signal and Systems @ UCB [Lee] Mathematic Foundation @ UCB [Tomlin] Revised Embedded and Hybrid Systems @ UCB [Tomlin, Sastry] Engineering Systems @ MIT [Balakrishnan] ActionWebs Research initiatives drive curriculum and program development
5 ActionWebs Kickoff Meeting– December 17, 2009 Education, K. Gates Post-Doc Mentoring Project Post-Doc Assignments: ActionWeb group meeting Coordinate research activities Support education and outreach activates Mentoring of SUPERB-CPS and RET participants Liaison between project and key industry partners Professional development activities Timeline: Years 1-5 Tools for Success in both Academic and Industrial Settings
6 ActionWebs Kickoff Meeting– December 17, 2009 Outreach: Curriculum Development at SJSU Development of embedded system and and control course at SJSU and continuing education programs that support professional development of Cyber- Physical Systems. This will be achieved by: Collaborative work between UCB and SJSU faculty Financial support for SJSU faculty in summer research and coursework design at UCB Development of Capacity Building Programs Timeline: Years 2-5. Education, K. Gates
7 ActionWebs Kickoff Meeting– December 17, 2009 Education, K. Gates Outreach: SJSU Capacity Building Program Objectives: 1. Reach out to the CSU and to other universities whose mission is focused on work-force preparation and undergraduate education 2. Share material and support structures developed by the ActionWeb partners 3. Strengthen the CPSS-related community of educators, and 4. Facilitate the education of members of underrepresented communities in the domain of secure technologies. Target Student Audiences 1. The broad population of educated individuals – general education 2. The designers of our future – STEM discipline students 3. The future domain specialists – BS and MS IT discipline students San Jose State University Partner with San Jose State University in the development of workshops that support and train educators in Cyber-Physical Systems Science Timeline: Years 2-5
8 ActionWebs Kickoff Meeting– December 17, 2009 Education, K. Gates Outreach: Research Experience for Undergraduates Summer Undergraduate Program in Engineering Research at Berkeley-CSS Program Overview: 8-week research experience Research guided by faculty mentors and graduate students Educational activities include lab tours and industry field trips Graduate school advising and subsidized GRE prep course Stipend with Travel Allowance Room and board provided at International House Cohort: 3 to 4 students per year Evaluation and Assessment: Student pre and post surveys Tracking post program Mentor feedback Advancement to Graduate School Timeline: Years 2-5
9 ActionWebs Kickoff Meeting– December 17, 2009 Education, K. Gates Outreach: Research Experience for Teachers (RET) Research Experience for SF Bay Area Master Teachers Program Overview: 10 week research experience Research guided by faculty mentors and graduate students Classroom and Lab Activities Professional Development Activities Partnering with SUPERB-CPS Development of course materials, electronic portfolios, and research activities Stipend with Travel Allowance Room and board provided at International House Cohort: 3 to 4 master teachers per year Program Evaluation and Assessment Evaluation Rubrics Follow-up surveys Poster Sessions Tracking course development and adoption Timeline: Years 2-5
10 ActionWebs Kickoff Meeting– December 17, 2009 Outreach: Increasing the Participation of Women ActionWebs will Influence Recruitment and Retention Target objective of 30% participation of women in the center CPSS research Curriculum RET REU This will be achieved by: Creating Coursework with Social Relevance Research Opportunities for Undergraduates Integrated Research across the Curriculum and Academic experience Recruitment of Women Financial Support Cohort of 10-15 students per year Timeline: Years 2-5 Education, K. Gates
11 ActionWebs Kickoff Meeting– December 17, 2009 Education, K. Gates Looking Forward Curriculum Development will leverage existing courses with new and revised courses offering Mentoring Post-Docs provide tools for success in both academic and industrial settings. Curriculum Development at SJSU will leverage and expand current programs as well as create new undergraduate research opportunities at SJSU. SJSU Capacity Building Program will draw in CSU and broaden participation. REU and RET programs will attract and retain students in STEM, create research opportunities for students and begin to file the STEM pipeline at the high school level. Increasing participation of women will support NSF broadening participation initiatives and US workforce development in STEM fields.
