SYNOPSIS The objective of this program is to stimulate innovative activities in the Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) disciplines by encouraging the transfer of state-of-the-art research results into undergraduate and introductory graduate curricula, by disseminating best practices in Information Technology (IT) education, investigating emerging areas, and implementing new IT programs. The program supports the design, development, testing, and dissemination of innovative approaches for increasing the effectiveness of educational experiences. CRCD/EI projects may involve: integrating research results into courses and curricula (the research may be ongoing or completed and may be drawn from any research activities in the computer and information sciences and engineering fields); the planning and implementation of formal activities designed to publicize effective innovative programs and IT concepts through workshops, publication and other dissemination mechanisms; and the creation of educational programs and tools that address cutting edge IT. The CRCD/EI Program places special emphasis on curricular approaches that address the recruitment and retention of women and under-represented minorities in IT educational programs.
