Milestone   Who
New Grant Proposal submission
  Project Staff
April 2009
The new proposal to NSF was sent on April 28. Our goal for this new project is to redesign the role of computing within the engineering programs at MSU and LCC to develop CT competencies - informed by industry needs - by infusing Computational Thinking learning opportunities.
Thank you to the AB members for the letters of support.

Pilot interview and survey instruments   Project Staff/AB members
May- July 2008
  • Completed the pilot part of our employer interview process.
  • Excellent response from our advisory board members who facilitated the pilot interview process by allowing us to interview them.
  • The data that we have obtained from the pilot process has helped us refine the interview protocol and also inform the development of the employee survey.
  • The advisory board members have provided us with an extended list of employers and members of professional engineering societies for further engagement.
Institutional Review Board (IRB) process:   Project Staff
May 15, 2008
At MSU, all human subject research must be reviewed and approved by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to protect the rights and safety of the participants before research can begin.
The IRB has been approved our research proposal as exempt because it entails no risk for the participants.  We may now begin pilot testing our interview and survey protocols.
