Special Time: 2:45 - 5 PM for the June 24, 2011 Event
Thanks to DeVry, they have organized senior project presentations to coincide with the same afternoon as our Education Committee, to not only provide us and our industry with an opportunity to hear directly from students about their undergraduate projects, but also, for us to garner insight into what makes the future workforce excited about IT. Following the senior presentations, we will hold our usual committee meeting, and invited is Carole Basile, who is one of the national STEM experts here in Colorado.
More details are below, and here are the direct facts:
Meeting Location and Logistics
Pepsi Center in the Continental Divide East Conference Room (Second Floor) (Free parking is available in Lot A (VIP South) parking lot. Attendees should enter at the Southeast corner of the Pepsi Center through the doors marked VIP. There will be a check in table at the entrance to assist you further.)
DeVry CIS Senior Project Presentations by graduating seniors from 2:45pm – 3:45pm
CSIA Education Committee meeting from 4pm – 5pm
(Informal networking afterward)
Student Presentations Details
There will be a team of five graduating seniors presenting three different prototyping projects, involving areas such as testing automation relative to Restful/Java-based Web Services, website development to support all of the foster dog associations in the area, and helpdesk automation through integration of ASP.NET, Active Directory and Exchange. Hearing directly from students is what you and other members of CSIA have told us would be of interest, so thank you to DeVry for allowing us to be a part of their student presentations.
CSIA Education Committee
Our invited guest speaker is Carole G. Basile, currently Professor and Chair of Advanced Urban Programs at the University of Colorado Denver. She is also Principal Investigator or Co-Principal Investigator for several research projects funded by the Colorado Department of Education, the National Governor’s Association, and the National Science Foundation all related to math and science education and teacher education in urban environments. She has served as the Board Chair for the Colorado STEM Network for the past three years and serves on advisory committees for several STEM related organizations and business groups. Dr. Basile was the founder and former Director of the Center for Applied Science and Mathematics for Innovation and Competitiveness (CASMIC) at the University of Colorado Denver (UCD) bringing together faculty from across the campus as well as external community stakeholders in an effort to promote math and science education. She was also Associate Dean of Teacher Education at UCD for six years with research efforts in teacher education, professional development schools, teacher leadership, and interdisciplinary learning. Beginning August 2011, she will be moving to St. Louis, Missouri as the Dean of the College of Education at the University of Missouri St. Louis.
We hope you will join us for this important two-part opportunity to gain important insight and perspectives, and thank you again to DeVry for hosting and coordinating this for us.
