Dr. Francia in NSF CCLI Panel Review
Dr. Guillermo A. Francia, III
Dr. Guillermo A. Francia, III, professor of computer science, served on a
review panel for the National Science Foundation’s Course, Curriculum, and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) program—Phase 1 (Exploratory
Projects) competition on July 6-7, 2006 in Washington, D.C.
The CCLI program’s objective is to improve the quality of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education for all
undergraduate students. It focuses on efforts that are geared toward one or more of the following activities: creating new learning
materials and teaching strategies, implementing educational innovations, developing faculty expertise, conducting research on STEM
teaching and learning, and assessing learning.
The program does not require matching funds from the host institution and is an excellent venue for enhancing the educational experiences
of undergraduates in institutions such as JSU, whose primary focus is in teaching. See
