Dear colleague,

Are you interested in integrating the exciting SOA/Web service technology into your introductory computing course and receive $5,000 for participating in a study? If so, we are soliciting qualified participants for our NSF-sponsored project on integrating Web services into CS1/IS1!

Our NSF TUES (Transforming Undergraduate Education in STEM) grant, entitled “Service-Oriented Paradigm Across Introductory Information Technology Curricula: An Expansion Study,” has recently been funded and we are offering mini-grants to our collaborators. The goal of this participation/collaboration is for you to teach a series of CS1 or IS1 programming classes using the Web service approach after attending a workshop and provide the required data for the assessment of the approach. For your efforts, your will be paid the amount of $5000 over a 1 year time period ($2000 for the first semester and $3000 for the second semester) in the form of a sub-award between our institutions. Funds can be used for summer salary, purchase of hardware, or other approved uses.

Please refer to the documents (click on the Application Materials tab above) for the details on participation requirements and application form and contact us if you have any questions. PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION BY March 15, 2013 and note that the number of collaborators that can be accommodated in this study is limited.  

We look forward to working with you! If you are not interested in participating, please pass this notice along to someone (inside or outside of your institution) who might be interested. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
