The title of this post is the name of the NSF funded project I have been working on since August 2007.
Here is the beginning of the project abstract from research.gov:
This CPATH collaborative project develops the models for extending Penn State’s successful institutional transformation based on building system of systems to other institutions of higher education. The first phase of the project is aimed at adoption of strategy at Georgia State University. The second phase involves systemic programmatic evaluation of the strategy in both settings. The third phase targets extending the strategy to include an open source element. The Penn State transformation strategy, Augmenting Education of Systems-of-Systems Professionals (AESOP), prepares computing professionals who can build and support large and complex systems. The strategy contains five major elements including organizational, curricular, active learning, problem-based learning, and experiential learning components.
