Of the 93 proposals submitted for this year’s competition, 33 were selected to receive awards. SUNY Oneonta received support these projects, according to the university:
• Virtual Infrastructure for Data Intensive Analysis (VIDIA):
The Center for Computational Research at the University at Buffalo (UB) and SUNY Oneonta will pilot a collaborative virtual community, enabling undergraduate students opportunities to create, manipulate and analyze large multi-terabyte datasets. This extends SUNY Oneonta’s “Big Data on Smaller Campuses,” an IITG-funded collaboration between SUNY Oneonta, UB, Penn State and IBM.
• Enriching Teaching Field Experience Through Technology (Kjersti VanSlyke-Briggs, associate professor of secondary education):
This project builds upon an established partnership school relationship between SUNY Oneonta and the Morris Central School District. A team of two education students will engage in a field experience that includes the use of technology in instruction for high school English classes over the course of one year.
SUNY Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost David K. Lavallee said, “The IITG program has already demonstrated significant returns by leveraging funding opportunities, but more importantly, it develops and sustains important faculty and staff collaborations across SUNY in an efficient manner.”
