I have been invited to serve as a panelist at the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) Annual Meeting at Hofstra University on May 13th (Sunday). The panel discussion is titled: “Partner Disciplines on Teaching Mathematics”. The schedule is posted here: http://sections.maa.org/metrony/meetings.html
I will be giving the Keynote talk at the 12th City Tech Research Conference 2018 on May 1st. The title of my talk is: “The Power of Descriptive, Predictive and Prescriptive Data Analytics”. I will be discussing the simplicity and power of large amounts of data in two specific areas: Search Engines and Educational Data Mining. The conference will be held in N-119. The schedule for the conference is: CTRC-12th City Tech Research Conference-PC-D.
I am pleased to announce that I am a Data Science Faculty member for the “M.S. program in Data Science” at CUNY Graduate Center. More details of the program can be found at: https://gc.cuny.edu/Page-Elements/Academics-Research-Centers-Initiatives/Masters-Programs/Data-Science/
Our paper (with Dr. Janusz Kusyk and Dr. Yu-Wen Chen) on “Design of Cloud Based Robots using Big Data Analytics and Neuromorphic Computing” has been accepted for publication at the 31st IEEE Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering (CCECE 2018). The conference will be held in Quebec city, Canada, from May 13th-16th, 2018.
I am happy to announce that I have been selected as an Open Educational Resources (OER) Initiative fellow for Spring 2018 – Fall 2018. It is a forum where through readings, assignments, discussions, and activities, participants will learn about open educational resources (OER), the principles of open pedagogy, and applicable strategies to create OERs. Topics will cover Creative Commons licensing, resources to help locate discipline specific OERs, and strategies to adopt and generate cohesive and engaging course materials.
I am pleased to inform that a discussion session titled “Pros and Cons of Using Data Analytics for Predicting Academic Performance in Computer Science Courses” (with co-authors J. Bivens and J. Chen), and a Poster titled “Building a Community of First Year Students Improves Student Retention and Performance in Computing Courses” (with co-author C. Cabo) are both accepted for publication at the ACM SIGCSE 2018 conference to be held in Feb 2018.
Our new paper (with Dr. Candido Cabo) on “Building Community Improves Student Performance in First-Year Computing Courses” has been accepted for presentation at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) 2018 annual meeting. AERA received over 13,000 submissions this year. The conference will be held in New York City, New York, from Friday, April 13 to Tuesday, April 17, 2018.
