Assistant Professor Doug Turnbull and Luke Waldner ’17 were awarded an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Research Grant to support the MegsRadio project. MegsRadio is a locally-focused personalized Internet radio service that is currently being developed by a team of computer science and emerging media students at Ithaca College.
Ali Erkan (Computer Science), Michael Smith (History/ENVS), Joe Rodriguez ( Computer Science '15) and Steve Lam (Computer Science '13) gave an invited talk, "Guiding Students Beyond Linear Thinking: The Learning in Networks of Knowledge (LINK) Project," as part of Indiana University's Center for Innovations in Teaching and Learning lecture series. The development of LINK was funded in part by an National Endowment for the Humanities grant. Joe and Steve also led a workshop with undergraduate researchers and Ali and Michael met with faculty groups interested in mentoring undergraduate research, the practice of the scholarship of teaching and learning, and data analytics.
This past weekend, seven members of newly recognized IC Women in Computing (ICWC) went to Rochester, NY to compete in WiC Hacks, a hackathon sponsored by the Rochester Institute of Technology for female college and high school students. ICWC’s mission is to support women in computer science through various personal and professional development opportunities. Congratulations on competing in the hackathon this past weekend and good luck at future competitions!
