Teaching & Learning Projects
FITL Application Development
The Automated Grading Platform (AGP) project, in collaboration with Industry Associate Professor Nicholas DiZinno of the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department, is a grading and feedback system for establishing a Total Quality Management approach for teaching and learning.
The Tracker application project began 2012 out of a need to automate some of the manual data tracking and analysis of tutoring activities in the TRIO Scholars Program. It is actively used by TRIO students, tutors, and program staff. Tracker 2.0 is currently in development.
This award-winning online tutorial uses a fun, gamified approach to prepare incoming first-year students for the process of registering for classes. Developed in partnership with the Academic Advisement Center, the tutorial is released to these students each June.
