Megabit Learning in a Gigabit World
iROC - Investigating Research on Campus
Please be with us on February 4th for the kick-off of the Spring
2016 iROC series when Stephen Cheskiewicz, Assistant Professor of
Information Technology in MSMC’s Division of Math and IT, will
present Megabit Learning in a Gigabit World.
In the rapidly advancing world of computer science (CS) and
information and communications technology (ICT) it is imperative
that institutions maintain the cutting edge programs required to be
effective and that students have come to expect. Is a failure of
institutions to “keep up” to blame for problematic student
persistence and shortages of qualified CS and ICT professionals?
The way students perceive the learning process and their choice of
careers in the technology field is dramatically changing.
Dr. Cheskiewicz originally presented this work at the Tenth
International Conference on Technology, Knowledge, and Society in
Stephen Cheskiewicz is Assistant Professor of Information
Technology in the Division of Math & Information Technology at
MSMC. Dr. Cheskiewicz has worked in the field of higher education
for over 20 years in both senior administrative and faculty
positions. He holds a Master’s degree in Instructional Technology,
and a Doctor of Education in Educational Technology from Wilkes
University. His scholarship focuses on a better understanding of
student retention and persistence in Science, Technology,
Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) academic programs.
