Virginia Tech Receives NSF Grant
September 18, 2007

The Living In the KnowlEdge Society (LIKES), Community Building project has received a National Science Foundation (NSF) – Pathways to Revitalized Undergraduate Computing Education (CPATH) award of $498,957. More than half of the grant, $289,999 is assigned to Virginia Tech, one of the four participating universities.

The other three universities are: Villanova University, North Carolina A&T University, and Santa Clara University.

“The hope of the LIKES project developers is that the transforming of education in computing-related disciplines will yield a next generation of contributors to the knowledge-based society” said Edward Fox, LIKES principal investigator and professor of computer science in the College of Engineering at Virginia Tech.

The LIKES project seeks to deliver new pedagogies in computing education; integration of computing concepts into non-computing disciplines, such as psychology and marketing; principles, guidelines, and techniques for integrating computing and non-computing curricula; and formation of new communities for enhancing that integration.
