These grants are:
  • Comparing Constructivist and Traditional Traditional Teaching Strategies in Engineering Education. Dr. Hernandez-Gantes serves as a Co-PI on this National Science Foundation project. The goal was to compare a series of constructivist teaching strategies and traditional lecturing in the context of an introductory course on Statistics and Probability. The course is required for all students majoring in engineering at the University of South Florida with a typical enrollment of 70-80 per section. Study results indicated a high level of appreciation for constructivist strategies and increased motivation for learning compared to lecturing.
  • CSTEP: Computer Science Transfer Education Programs. Dr. Hernandez-Gantes served as external evaluator on this project. CSTEP is a 3-year collaborative effort funded by the National Science Foundation under the Broadening Participation in Computing (BPC) program designed to bridge students from community colleges to 4-year universities and graduate school. This is a demonstration project between Hillsborough Community College (HCC), one of the largest community colleges in the Tampa Bay area, and the University of South Florida (USF).
