Professor Emeritus: Theodore Frick
Since retiring in December, 2012, I no longer teach formal classes at Indiana University. However, I continue to mentor students in my research groups and to teach through the Web.
- Computer-Mediated Learning (R547)
- Application of Research Methods to IST Issues (R690)
- Research Seminar in IST (R695)
- All courses over my career (vita)
I continue to do research and development, and voluntarily mentor students in my research groups. This mentoring, of course, is a form of teaching which is organized around specific R&D projects that can span multiple semesters, rather than being organized by a course or class for university credit.
Teaching through the Web: Anytime, Anywhere
- What is Plagiarism at Indiana University? Short concept lesson in form of a quiz (free)
- How to Recognize Plagiarism: Tutorial and millions of randomized tests (free)
- The Cost of Borrowing Money: Did you know that if you borrow $50,000 at 8% interest, and pay it back over 20 years, you will pay over $50,000 in total interest! Change numbers and see what happens.
- Make Decisions with Sequential Observations: How quickly can you choose one alternative over another by sequential sampling? Demonstration of Bayesian reasoning with Wald's Sequential Probability Ratio Test (SPRT).
- The Diffusion Simulation Game (Version 1) (with R641 Project Team): How many teachers can you get to adopt an innovation? (about an hour or less for each time you play, works in any browser)
- The Diffusion Simulation Game (Version 2 Beta): (with SimEd Research Group): Same game as Version 1, but incorporates a redesigned user interface to speed up play (requires browser with Flash player and display resolution of 1024x768 or higher).
- The Diffusion Simulation Game (Version 3 Alpha): (by Jake Enfield as part of his Ph.D. dissertation research): Multiple versions of the DSG developed with Ten Steps to Complex Learning (requires browser with Flash player and display resolution of 1024x768 or higher).
