2011 PSU Worthington Scranton TDG request – Camtasia.

 

One of the major initiatives of the Core Council report was the development of alternative modes of delivery for course both for our campus and between campuses. I have successfully delivered STAT 200 online supported with a series of 22, five minute videos that I prepared. The 5 minute limitation was due to the free version of TechSmith software Jing. I am also delivering IST 412 this semester via Adobe Connect which allows presentation and recording of both live video and audio. This software, however, has no capability for pausing, which is critical for development of videos. I am requesting $166.87 for a license for Camtasia which will allow for unlimited video and audio preparation without regard to time limits, and allow for pausing and editing. I feel this would be a valuable addition to our delivery options. I would be willing to train others if successful. Awarded,  $166.87.

 

2011 PSU Worthington Scranton PDG request

 

In August of 2011, I accepted the duties of Discipline Coordinator for Information Sciences and Technology for the 14 campuses of University College.

N.        List of Grants and Contracts for Improvement of Instruction

 

Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence, Inspire Teaching Academy Grants,           $2600.00 Awarded,   2005-2006.

 

Penn State Worthington Scranton STEM Infrastructure Upgrade         , 2009, Ben Franklin Technology Center of Northeastern, PA, Principal Investigator.  A $33,834.00 STEM grant has allowed PSWS to purchase highly versatile Optics Kits, which include new lasers, speed of light apparatus and interferometers. The class of Spring 2010, pre-engineering students enrolled in PHYS 214 (12-15 students a year), will be able to accurately measure the speed of light, as well as perform experiments using an interferometer in three possible configurations, Michelson, Fabry-Perot and Twyman-Green. The versatility of the interferometers and the interchangeability of the equipment will allow the introduction of interferometry to engineering students.  From a practical standpoint, interferometry techniques have been used in fiber optics, seismology, metrology and remote sensing. More fundamentally, the apparatus can be used to measure the wavelength of light, as well as the index of refraction of air and other substances.  Also, there is the hope of introducing physics technology students (approximately 10 per year) to the apparatus, as well as using the apparatus for demonstrations hopefully capturing the imagination of the uninitiated in science.

 

The supplies purchased also include one Hach MS5 multiprobe Hydrolab, used to measure water quality parameters in lakes, streams and rivers. This will be used in classroom demonstration and in field courses to measure physical and chemical parameters including dissolved oxygen, pH, conductivity, turbidity, temperature and depth. The data can be analyzed in biology and chemistry courses to show the chemical relationships that exist in freshwater systems especially in relationship to depth.

 

Moreover, our commitment to outreach will be strengthened by our ability to “better” partner with area high schools, through teacher training and in student engagement such as the PA Junior Academy of Science program and with community organizations such as local watershed and conservancy groups."            $33,834.00      Awarded    

 

Security and Risk Analysis and Mitigation for Area College and Secondary Education, Industry, 2008-2009, Community, and Future Area Professionals     Ben Franklin Technology Center of Northeastern, PA,  Co-Principal Investigator,  $187,500  Awarded

 

The objective of this proposal is to provide broad-based subsidized training in Security, Risk and Network Integrity to the area’s high school educators and students, financial services and other key area industry personnel, and the community at large. This includes strengthening our Network and Computer Security Laboratory at Penn State Worthington Scranton to support security, networking and information assurance education. The laboratory focuses on six major areas: 1) Networking & Telecommunications, 2) Information Security & Assurance, 3) E-Business Security, 4) Web and database security, and 5) General Physical Security, and 6) Disaster Planning and Recovery.

To effectively address this shortage, it requires computer and network security education that provides more than descriptions of security theory and concepts. Penn State Worthington Scranton is developing the Security and Risk Analysis (SRA) program which could provide top-notch graduates for security related positions. SRA is based on an interdisciplinary curriculum that exposes students to these areas of study including security (both logical and physical), intelligence analysis, and the social and organizational factors associated with protection in order to meet the goal of a new educational program that meets societal needs. The combination of these SRA skills with each student’s major field enhances the application of security and risk analysis to nearly every other domain. The SRA program’s benefits are premised on the support of unique training and education in the analysis and assurance associated with security-critical concepts in various domains. Graduates will have many career choices and will be well-prepared for financial service jobs. The enhanced security lab included in this proposal will be integrated into this program development and will provide training for both the financial service industry and all the “expanded talent development” industries.

 

The proposed security programs provide a foundation in the computer and network security education. This is accomplished by providing students the opportunity to get hands-on experience through lab assignments in correlation with classes. This allows the student to gain a better understanding of the material through implementation and practice in addition to learning through textbooks and lectures. Security classes instead of merely discussing how different protocols, securing practices, and encryption algorithms are used will now be able to elaborate these topics by installing, configuring and testing topic related programs in the laboratory.

 

For industry and continuing education students, certificate programs will be developed to provide specific training in the necessary security and risk skills to improve their operations and meet privacy protection requirements. For the community at large, specific short sessions will be presented to make individuals aware of home security issues and ways to address and overcome common security shortcomings including intrusion, identity theft, and personal information protection.

 

Overall, we see our personnel and facilities providing valuable services to all our participants and collaborators. No one is exempt from the security issues noted and we all share a common goal of safeguarding our proprietary and personal information and protecting corporate and personal privacy.

S.         Unit-Specific objective Criteria for Assessing the Scholarly Substance

 

 

H-Index

 

The h-index is an index that attempts to measure both the productivity and impact of the published work of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications. The index can also be applied to the productivity and impact of a group of scientists, such as a department or university or country. The index was suggested by Jorge E. Hirsch, a physicist at UCSD, as a tool for determining theoretical physicists' relative quality[1] and is sometimes called the Hirsch index or Hirsch number.delta-H and delta-G

These two values measure the minimum number of citations needed for incrementing the current h-index (g-index, respectively), by 1.

 

G-Index

 

The g-index is an index for quantifying scientific productivity based on publication record. It was suggested in 2006 by Leo Egghe. The index is calculated based on the distribution of citations received by a given researcher's publications. Given a set of articles ranked in decreasing order of the number of citations that they received, the g-index is the (unique) largest number such that the top g articles received (together) at least g2 citations. The g-index has been characterized in terms of three natural axioms by Woeginger (2008). The simplest of these three axioms states that by moving citations from weaker articles to stronger articles, one's research index should not decrease. The g-index is highly correlated with the h-index (Serenko 2010). However, these indices are conceptually distinct, and the g-index attempts to address shortcomings of the h-index. Like the h-index, the g-index is a natural number and thus lacks in discriminatory power.

 

In the case of delta-h the value is computed as (h+1)-c[h+1] + sum_(from 1 to h)[max((h+1) - c[i],0)], where c[h] is the number of citations for the paper in position h, and h is the current h-index.

delta-G is computed as (g+1)^2 - sum(from 1 to g+1)c[i], for g the current g-index.

Note that for increasing h-index by 1, one has to obtain delta-H new citations on those particular papers which fail to have h+1 citations: all the first h+1 papers must reach at least h+1 citations, meaning that usually the (h+1)-th paper is the main culprit for the value of delta-H. Viceversa, for increasing g-index, any new citation on the first g+1 papers matters, no matter how it is distributed.

 

E-Index

The h-index has already been used by major citation databases to evaluate the academic performance of individual scientists. Although effective and simple, the h-index suffers from some drawbacks that limit its use in accurately and fairly comparing the scientific output of different researchers. These drawbacks include information loss and low resolution: the former refers to the fact that in addition to h2 citations for papers in the h-core, excess citations are completely ignored, whereas the latter means that it is common for a group of researchers to have an identical h-index.

Methodology/Principal Findings

 

To solve these problems, I here propose the e-index, where e2 represents the ignored excess citations, in addition to the h2 citations for h-core papers. Citation information can be completely depicted by using the h-index together with the e-index, which are independent of each other. Some other h-type indices, such as a and R, are h-dependent, have information redundancy with h, and therefore, when used together with h, mask the real differences in excess citations of different researchers.

Conclusions/Significance

 

Although simple, the e-index is a necessary h-index complement, especially for evaluating highly cited scientists or for precisely comparing the scientific output of a group of scientists having an identical h-index.

 

delta-H and delta-G should be a measure of how difficult would be for the author at hand to increase his/her h and g-index. Note that the range of delta-h is relatively small (in the worst case, delta-h= 2h+1).

 

Normalized Values

Normalized values (the second row of data which is displayed) are computed by normalizing the number of citations found per each paper. From version 2.3 on, there are two types of normalization.

 

Normalization per author: if paper i has been cited t times, and has been written by k authors, its number of normalized citations is t/k.

All the indices values, in the row where data are normalized per author, are computed considering these normalized values. In particular the normalized h-index corresponds to h_{I,Norm} of Publish or Perish.

Due to limitations on the Google Scholar output format, Scholar H-Index truncates to 4 (or 5) the author count for papers having more than 4 authors. In such a case, the presented h_{I,Norm} has to be taken has an upper bound estimate of its real value (take care, especially for fields like Biology and Chemistry in which 12+ authors is the usual number). For having a finer-grained value the Addon Advanced Interface allows to semi-automatically fix the number of authors to the accurate value.

 

Normalization per age: if paper i has been cited t times, and has been written in 2001, its number of normalized citations per age is t/(CY-2001+1), for CY the current year.

The above corresponds to the contemporary h-index of Sidiropoulos et al., with parameters delta=1 and gamma=1.

Note that indices (h,g and e) computed on values normalized per age do not coincide with any of the Age Weighted metrics displayed by Publish or Perish, nor with PoP hc-index (which is the contemporary h-index with delta=1 and gamma=4).

 

Although this metric can be subject of criticism (values will abruptly change each Jan 1st 0:00:01; citations on old papers become exponentially less influential year by year), we found it as having an intuitive simmetry and interpretation, compared with plain indices, and compared with indices normalized per co-authorship.

About the PSU Enterprise Research Consortium

A special interest Group on Enterprise Integration involving faculty from five academic departments- Business Logistics, Industrial Engineering, Management Science & Information Systems (all at University Park campus), Business (Erie campus), and Engineering (Great Valley campus) was formed in summer 1998. In Spring,  1999, Penn State joined the SAP University Alliance Program that currently includes 100 member colleges, universities and other groups in the academic community. The Unisys Corporation gave a gift of high-end servers to host the generous gift of SAP software in the University Park campus. It is configured for access from all Penn State campuses. in Fall 1999, the School of Information Sciences & Technology joined the Enterprise Integration Consortium.

 

Our multi-disciplinary, multi-campus plan is ambitious. Our efforts over these past years have been spread across many areas including an innovative curriculum development program that will use Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Supply Chain Management software to teach the fundamental concepts related to the engineering and management of Global Supply Chains and the use and of management of Enterprise Information Systems. This continuing effort has produced a multi-disciplinary set of courses that spans engineering, business and management information systems/technology programs at several Penn State Campuses. SAP R/3 and other ERP software will allow us to provide students hands-on experience with state-of-the-art information systems for decision making in complex environments involving vast amounts of information. We believe that these efforts are well aligned with Penn State's strategic goals of enhancing academic excellence through greater support for high-quality teaching by deploying advanced information technology as a learning tool and enabling more partnerships with business and industry through these interdisciplinary efforts.
