Although involvement in art and design have been shown to play an essential role in catalyzing STEM research, true integration is still an area of active research. The realization of STEM education via STEAM lends itself to interactive and participatory dialogic art; this juncture provides a nonjudgmental space to cultivate the question-making aspect of(More)
There is no standard yet for measuring and controlling the costs associated with implementing cybersecurity programs. To advance research and practice towards this end, we develop a mapping using the well-known concept of quality costs and the Framework Core within the Cybersecurity Framework produced by the National Institute of Standards and Technology(More)
Fostering deep and meaningful self-reflection that leads to action, growth, and personal change among students challenges professors of large classes. Over 280 students in a single lecture course on critical thinking were asked to take part in a self-analysis and also were provided multisource (360°) feedback. The combination of personalized feedback from(More)
Declarative styles such as functional programming (FP) are rapidly gaining ground on their imperative cousins, including procedural and object-oriented programming. The shift is subtle because it is happening within the context of multiparadigm programming languages such as JavaScript. FP is better suited to modern processes like test-driven development(More)
Ensuring high-quality software requires considering the social climate within which the applications will be deployed and used. This can be done by designing quality goals and objectives that are consistent with changing social and ethical landscapes. Using principles of technological determinism, this article presents three cases that illustrate why it is(More)
Poor software quality can adversely affect application security by increasing the potential for a malicious breach of a system. Because computer security and cybersecurity are becoming such relevant topics for practicing software engineers, the need for educational opportunities in this area is steadily increasing. Universities and colleges have recognized(More)
This exploratory study used the R Statistical Software to perform Monte Carlo simulation of time maps, which characterize events based on the elapsed time since the last event and the time that will transpire until the next event, and compare them to time maps from real Twitter users. Time maps are used to explore differences in the interarrival patterns of(More)
