Special Projects 2010

Since 2003 SIGCSE has awarded a limited number of Special Projects Grants each year. These grants help SIGCSE members investigate and introduce new ideas in the learning and teaching of computing. Projects must provide some clear benefit to the wider disciplinary community in the form of new knowledge, developing or sharing of a resource, or good practice in learning, teaching, or assessment.

Here is a list of the awards given in 2010:

The Enculturation of Taurus (Taulbee for the Rest of Us)
Jodi Tims (jltims@bw.edu)
Susan Williams (rebstock@georgiasouthern.edu)
Award: $2,400
Award Date: August 2010

The "Taulbee for the Rest of Us" special project was an important first step in
providing student and faculty information for institutions that offer computing
degrees but are not Ph.D. granting. This project will modify and expand the
survey in a manner that will make it sustainable on a yearly basis.
