I wanted to let everyone know that I will be participating in the Institute for Intelligent Systems “Speed Date” program this Friday. I was invited to present about the research and projects I am currently working on, so I plan to talk about
- the mMIND project and mobile teaching and learning,
- my research with Dr. Jongpil Cheon in cognitive load theory and interface design and measuring cognitive load, and
- my research in project-based learning and learning artifacts.
Here’s the info for the Speed Date. I hope you’ll plan to attend:
2nd Speed Date of the Institute for Intelligent Systems
Friday May 4, 4PM-5PM in the Methodist Theater of the FedEx Institute of Technology (ground floor)
Confirmed speakers include Bonny Banerjee (IIS / Electrical & Computer Engineering), Eugene Buder (Communication Science and Disorders), Usef Faghihi and Xiangen Hu (Psychology), Michael Grant (Instructional Design and Technology), Chip Morrison (Center for Research in Educational Policy), Phil Pavlik (IIS / Psychology), Deb Tollefsen (Philosophy)
2012 Student Poster Session of the Institute for Intelligent Systems Student Organization (IISSO)
Friday May 4, 5PM-7PM in the Fogelman Center
(drinks and hors d’oeuvres served)
The IIS speed date is an excellent opportunity to learn about the interdisciplinary research at the Institute for Intelligent Systems at the University of Memphis. In one hour you will get a flavor of the various research projects that IIS affiliates are currently involved in. The purpose of the speed date is just that: a matchmaking research opportunity.
The IISSO student poster session will provide another outstanding overview of the interdisciplinary research conducted in the IIS. Students from departments as diverse as Psychology, Computer Science, Engineering, Philosophy, Physics, Education, English, and Communication Science and Disorders will display their research on posters.
