        • Experience is the best teacher.
        • Lazy professor, active student!
        • Hi Tech = Hard Work.

        Recent Innovations

        In 2003 I taught CSCI372 Computer Systems in Organizations for the first time having developed the course for the new BA in Computer Systems.

        From 1999-2000 I pushed through the curriculum changes to include Formal Methods classes in the BS and MS degrees. I taught them for the first time in winter of 2002.

        As part of the Department's ROOT project I prepared a large number of UML handouts and changed the content and format of CS320 (Programming Languages) to include Object-Oriented Analysis and Design. The class uses an active learning rather than lecture/discussion. The students prepare lab reports on the Web. They carry out a group project where they design a new programming language and specify its syntax and semantics in BNF and the UML. This work has been presented at major international conferences (OOPSLA and SCI).

        I developed techniques for using the Web to get anonymous feedback from students -- the FEEDBACK'99 project below.

        Previous Innovations

        As the founding chair I developed the first versions of all the classes in the major and certificate up to the middle 1980's. All computer science lecture rooms were equipped so that either a terminal or a networked computer could be used as an audio-visual aid by 1983. The rest of the campus provided similar facilities 16 years later.

        I've been using Electronic Mail for student work since the middle 1980's. This used the first modem-accessible system on campus. We also put up the first UNIX servers and laboratories at this time.

        In 1993 I helped recreate the Computer Science Certificate program. I developed two of the central courses in this program.

        In 1994 I proposed, defined, planned, developed, and pioneered the teaching of Internet skills and knowledge as a GE subject on campus. I put up first World Wide Web Pages on campus and created a special site to act as guides and visual aids in the CS124 Internet Class. This was praised in the student Newspaper in the Fall of 1995.

        I put all my teaching materials on the World Wide Web. It is easy, using the tools I have developed, to create electronic texts and visual aids. I want to move beyond this. For 5 years I have been experimenting with electronically mediated discussions in appropriate courses. In the Fall I attended the Active Learning Workshop offered by the Teaching Resource Center, CSUSB. I use some of these techniques in class. I am starting to develop ways to place these activities in the materials I make available on the World Wide Web.

        In Fall 1997, for the first time, I offered a class where students had no need to attend either the lecture/discussions or the laboratory sections. All the presentations, assigned work, discussion, materials, lab work, interaction etc. has been mediated by the World-Wide-Web rather than face-to-face. Only attendance at the final is required. THis has now been handed over as a package to others to teach.

        I was Network Administrator of the Computer Science UNIX Network from Fall, 1994 to Fall 2000.

        I presented some special sessions introducing the Internet to people in the WR&AR Center. I have acted as a consultant to the San Bernardino, Sun/Telegram Life Styles Team. I publish and maintain the "Recently Announced Pages" directory for the WWW. I have recently been commended for my Java documentation page. I advise the San Bernardino "Guthrie Memorial Music Library" on ways to use the WWW. I run the Unofficial Inland Symphony of San Bernardino page: [ symphony.html ]

        Founding Chair of CSci Dept 1983-1989.

        As Chair I developed a series of computer laboratories and computerized lecture rooms in the Biology Building and the Physical Science Building. By 1985 I had started the first dial up student service on campus. This used donated equipment from the Digital Equipment Corporation, and was supported by a series of grants from the chancellor's office. The system was managed in a novel way by a team of student interns, under my leadership. I designed computer laboratories for the CS dept in what became University Hall and Jack Brown Hall. These plans were implemented by later chairs of the department.

      Professional Growth Activities

        Overview

          I am studying how people develop software. My central question is: Why are there such massive gaps between practice, teaching, and research?

          Methods

          I have made a detailed study of the various methods that are (1)taught (2) advocated in research, and (3) in use. By September 1995 I had a bibliographic data base of more that 1500 papers and books on my old Powerbook 140 [ pb140.gif ] It has grown to over 1900 items. I have translated this into hypertext on the Web. but it is too large to be accessed quickly and easily [ bib.html] . So I am supervising a Graduate project that will develop it into an efficient online client/server database. An early prototype can be found on my research page: [ Lab in research ]

          MATHS

          From 1971 to 1995 I focused on ways that computer science and mathematics can be used in producing software. I discovered that there was no simple way to do put mathematical statements into a document so that computers could test, interpret, and share them. I developed a prototype language to do this. I experimented with systems using the Internet. One became a tool that I use for preparing documents for my teaching and research. It was used for preparing this document.

          In 1997 started developing an experimental online interactive system for retrieving information from my data base of formal descriptions [ Lab in research ]

          I submitted a research monograph on language to the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers(IEEE) Computer Society Press in 1992.

          Beyond Mathematics and Methods

          In 1995 I moved on from studying the use of computer science and mathematics in software development to showing how different market situations demand different methods. I presented this work at a department seminar. In 1996 I rewrote part of this as a paper on an economic model of software development for the mass market. This was presented at the International Conference on Software Engineering in April 1997.

          Reviews etc

          I have been publishing an average of five voluntary reviews per year in Computing Reviews - "The Review Journal of the Association for Computing Machinery(ACM)". ACM is the main professional society for computer scientists. "Computing Reviews" is the prime source of information on the materials published in the field. [ reviews ] [ Current.html ]

          I also do paid pre-publication reviews of computer science textbooks.

          I have been publishing letters and articles in IEEE Computing and IEEE Software magazines and presenting two or three seminars in the department's faculty seminar series per year.

          In 1996 the Software Engineering Transactions of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers(IEEE Trans SE) a short paper critiquing a formal model of the Object Modeling Technique(OMT). I've since been invited to review papers for the IEEE Trans SE.
