1. What do you do, and how long have you been doing it?

I have been creating videos since high school, so for quite a while now. As video turned digital so did I and since the beginning of this century I have been professionally creating computer animation. I still create video art as well, and combine computer animation with video.

I have also been an educator for most of my adult life. I started out teaching sound at The Netherlands Film and Television Academy and am currently teaching animation at Monmouth University in New Jersey.

1. What do you do, and how long have you been doing it?

I'm an Associate Professor of Animation at Middle Tennessee State University. I've been teaching at MTSU for six years now and about 14 years total at the collegiate level. I teach classes involving modeling, texturing, lighting, rigging, animating, rendering, and compositing. I also teach two senior capstone courses where students make an animated short film and their marketing materials to assist them in their job search after graduation.

1. What do you do, and how long have you been doing it?

Currently I am a professor at Middle Tennessee State University and I've been here since 1989. I started in the Art department and then moved over to one called Electronic Media Communication where I had the opportunity to start a new program in Animation. I currently teach classes in Animation, Compositing and a few others related to Video production.

AR Sandbox: Cutting-Edge Earth Science Visualization
Tags: augmented reality, Education, Visualization
By Kristy Barkan

There are few kids who don't see the appeal in building and smashing piles of sand. But when such destruction results in real-time changes to a topographic map filled with lakes of virtual water, it becomes something more than just play. It becomes science.


ICETI 2015
Tags: conference, Education, informatics

Education (cognitive development) and training (performance in a specific skill) are different but highly related notions. They have common means to achieve their objectives as it is the case of, for example, teaching, learning and e-learning. Informatics is supporting both of them with an increasing frequency and effectiveness in more and more activities and domains.

Complexity, Cybernetics, and Informing Science/Engineering are increasingly being related on the conceptual, methodological, and practical dimensions. T. Grandon Gill’s book (Informing Business: Research and Education on a Rugged Landscape) shows the strong and important relationships between Complexity and Informing Science (specifically academic informing), and the potentiality of these relationships in supporting the integration of academic activities: Research, Education, and Consulting or real Life Problem Solving.

Education (cognitive development) and training (performance in a specific skill) are different but highly related notions. They have common means to achieve their objectives as it is the case of, for example, teaching, learning and e-learning. Informatics is supporting both of them with an increasing frequency and effectiveness in more and more activities and domains. The objective of ICETI 2014 is to bring together researchers, professionals and practitioners from the three areas so they can share their knowledge and experiences in an multi- and inter-disciplinary intellectual climate.


DeMset 2013
Tags: conference, Education, Modeling, science

Design and modeling are concepts and activities common to several disciplines in Science, Education, and Technology. Consequently, design and modeling provide effective concepts, theories, methodologies, and tools for intra- and inter-disciplinary communications. The World Multi-Conference on Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics: WMSCI might provide synergic relationships with a conference on Design and Modeling, and vice versa.


EITSA 2013
Tags: conference, Education, Information Systems

Relationships between Education/Training and Information/Communication Technologies (ICT) are increasing accelerating -- sometimes in unexpected ways -- with original ideas, innovative tools, methodologies and synergies. Accordingly, the main purpose of EISTA 2013 is to bring together researchers and practitioners from both areas, to support the bridging process between education/training and ICT communities.
