Five things you need to know about UNF’s new QEP

Student on computer in libraryThe University of North Florida is proposing a new initiative as part of its ongoing quality improvement process to further enhance student learning. Here are five things you need to know:

1. What is a QEP?
QEP is an acronym for Quality Enhancement Plan.

2. Why is it important?
Establishing a QEP is a required process the University undertakes to successfully gain reaffirmation of its accreditation.

3. What is the new QEP and what does it contain?
The new QEP is: Writing Around the Curriculum. It identifies key issues, develops goals for student learning and creates a plan for assessing achievement.

4. What is the next step in the process?
The University will organize a team to further develop the proposed QEP over the next year. In February 2019, the QEP will be submitted to the on-site accreditation team for review.


5. Did UNF have a previous QEP?
Yes. UNF remains committed to the previous QEP: Community-Based Transformational Learning.

Faculty Forum

Meet Dr. Swapnoneel Roy

Dr. Swapnoneel Roy photoDr. Swapnoneel Roy is an assistant professor of computing in the College of Computing, Engineering and Construction.

What courses do you teach? Mostly courses on computer security, such as Introduction to Computer Security, Information Systems Intrusion Detection, Computer Security Policies and Disaster Preparedness, Computer Cryptography, Security Practices in Software Systems and others.

What research are you doing? My research area is primarily in the field of computer security, and secondarily in the field of green computing and algorithms. I have advised several graduate students for their respective M.S. theses, worked with undergraduate students in independent studies and published articles with student co-authors.

If you weren’t teaching, what else would you be doing and why? Probably writing code for somebody else to sell and make money from! I was a software engineer with IBM before I pursued my Ph.D. The majority of my fellow Ph.D.s joined the industry and write code every day. I probably would have done the same had I not been offered a faculty position.

What brought you to UNF? I always wanted to teach and, when I visited during the interview process, I was very impressed with the department, the environment and Jacksonville’s weather. (I spent five years in Buffalo, New York, prior to coming here!)

What’s one thing in your field of study that people might not know? How vulnerable their information is!

If you could witness any historical event, what would it be and why? It’s very difficult to think of a single event. I would want to see all seven ancient wonders of the world if given a chance (only the great Pyramids of Egypt exist among the seven). I would want to see how or what technology the Egyptians used to build those pyramids!

How do you recharge? I watch the same science fiction films again and again. Actually I watch favorite scenes of films.

What is your personal philosophy? “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven.”

What advice would you give a student who is about to graduate? Follow you passion, and don’t run after money. Be the best in what you do, and let money follow you!

Meet Diane Stover

Diane Stover photoJob title and department: Coordinator of Outreach and Recruitment at the Military and Veterans Resource Center

What do you do at UNF? I work with military affiliated students, a group that includes veterans, dependents, Active Duty, Guard and Reserves. I provide information, assistance and guidance as well as transition assistance to those wishing to attend UNF. In addition, I coordinate efforts within UNF and the greater Jacksonville community to create opportunities for these students.

What do you enjoy about working here? I really enjoy working with and meeting everyone here. Everyone I meet is kind and genuinely wants to help. I love working with and helping students and the environment of learning that is incorporated within UNF, both at the academic and staff levels.

What one memory do you most treasure? I have five most treasured memories: Bryan, Shannon, Jimmy, Matthew and Courtney.

If you could have a dinner party and invite any four people, from the past or present, who would be on your guest list? So many to choose from! So hard to narrow down! William the Marshal, George Washington, Leonardo da Vinci, Queen Elizabeth II. Why? I love history, I love science, I love trailblazers and those who challenge the current way of thinking.

Tell us something that might surprise us about you.
I took four years of Russian language and culture.

What one food do you wish had zero calories? Potato Chips

What’s at the top of your bucket list? A house on a minimum of 5 acres, on a lake with a boat, and a herd of Newfoundlands. It sounds wonderful and fun.

How long have you lived in Jacksonville? Where else have you lived? I have lived in Jacksonville 14 years. I have lived many places, primarily east of the Mississippi River.

Where would you like to go on a dream vacation? Europe — there are so many places to see! The history, the arts, nature, experiencing so many different places and the way other people live their lives.

Tell us a few of your favorite things.
Childhood memory: Waterskiing
Color: Evergreen
Physical activity: Running in the rain
Sport to watch: Ice Hockey
Quote: No act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted. (Aesop)

Students from the College of Education participated in a study abroad at the University of Chester from May 28 until June 9. They had the opportunity of working with youngsters at the University of Chester in classrooms and in three different school settings and experiencing what life is like working in northern England. As well as experiencing school and university culture, the students also visited Manchester, Liverpool and Llandudno where they visited cathedrals, museums, tasted the local cuisine, and even took a stroll along the Irish Sea. Because this experience came days after the bombing in Manchester and the attacks in London, the students laid a wreath on behalf of the University of North Florida out of respect for those who had died.

Drs. Richard Chant and Brian Zoellner presented their paper, “Using Personal Theorizing to Guide Action Research within Graduate Teacher Education” to the 19th Annual Athens Institute for Education and Research International Education Conference in Greece, May 15-18. The presentation focused on a study of the cohort-based MED program initiated by the Foundations and Secondary Education Department with a group of social studies, mathematics and English teachers from Sandalwood High School. The program was designed to emphasize personal theorizing and action research as core constructs engaged with by cohort participants. The paper illustrated the use of personal theorizing and action research model throughout the MED program, and the analysis selected artifacts that served as data points critical to participants’ personal theorizing and action research processes. Surveys were also used to examine the program and overall influences of the process within the participants’ own professional development. The data strongly supported the processes engaged with by the participants and the final action research studies well represented the competencies important in teacher empowerment and decision-making.

The Goods

Carrots

Extremely versatile to eat and available nearly anywhere in the world, carrots have been around for centuries. Carrots are members of the parsley family and were first cultivated in Afghanistan more than 2,000 years ago. The type of carrot most commonly eaten around the world is the domesticated form of the wild carrot, Daucus carota, native to Europe and southwestern Asia. Andrea Altice, an instructor in the Nutrition and Dietetics Flagship Program, discusses myths about carrots and includes a recipe below.

Myth: Carrots are high in sugar and nutrition.Carrots on a table
Fact: Carrots have a higher natural sugar content than all other vegetables, with the exception of beets; however, carrots are an excellent source of beta-carotene and contain high amounts of fiber as well as vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B6, folate, calcium and magnesium.

Myth: Eating carrots improves one’s eyesight.
Fact: Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, a carotenoid pigment that our bodies turn into vitamin A. Deficiencies in vitamin A are the leading cause of blindness in the developing world. Although the carrot provides many benefits for healthy vision, eating carrots every day will not restore vision to 20/20.

Myth: Raw carrots provide more nutritional value than cooked carrots.
Fact: Researchers at the University of Arkansas found that pureed, cooked carrots not only retained their nutritional value, but the beta-carotene levels increased dramatically when introduced to heat rather eaten raw.

The Goods is a monthly column about food myths and facts by faculty members in the Nutrition and Dietetics Flagship Program that runs in the “Taste” section of The Florida Times-Union. Have a question about carrots? Contact Dr. Altice at aaltice@unf.edu.
