Dr. Gursimran Walia wins NSF grant

We are pleased to announce that Gursimran Walia, professor and chair of the Department of Computer Science, and his collaborators, have just received notification of a new $600,000 award through the NSF Improving Undergraduate STEM Education Program: Education and Human Resources (IUSE: EHR). This is a collaborative project that will be carried out with teams of researchers at Georgia Southern University (PI: Dr. Walia), the University of Alabama (PI: Dr. Jeffrey C. Carver), and Western Oregon University (PI: Dr. Lucas Cordova).

This project aims to serve the national interest by integrating an inquiry-based learning approach (a type of inductive learning), contained within Testing Tutor, to support the software testing pedagogy in a computer science curriculum.  Software testing is a critical skill computer science students need to acquire to be successful practitioners.
