Professors Daryl Close and Sean Joyce were both presenters at the 19th Annual Faculty Research Symposium, held February 6 on the Heidelberg Campus. The annual event is sponsored by the Academic Enhancement Committee and is a precursor to the highly regarded Student Research Conference held in late February. The purposes of the event are to
- Inform students, faculty, and staff about faculty research and scholarly interests;
- Watch faculty present and perform; and
- Show students how to present research in various disciplines, so that they may apply the techniques to their own presentations.
Dr. Close was a co-presenter with Dr. Tom Newcomb, in a presentation entitled Electronic Surveillance by the State: Political and Ethical Perspectives. Prof. Joyce presented on Using Cloud-Based Revision Control Systems to Facilitate Student Collaboration in Programming Courses.
In all, 15 Heidelberg faculty members presented their work at the event.
