Administrative Duties & Strategic Activities

Associate Dean for Education (January 2016—Present): As the Associate Dean for Education, Prof. Anderson provides vision and leadership for placing CU Boulder's College of Engineering & Applied Science at the forefront of engineering education, including curriculum modernization, undergraduate student programs, enhanced-learning initiatives, and program assessment.

Leader of the Colorado Affiliate of the NCWIT Aspirations in Computing Award (Fall 2010—Present): Organizes the Colorado Affiliate of the NCWIT Aspirations in Computing Award and hosts the awards ceremony for this award at CU Boulder each Spring. This award recognizes the computing achievements of female high school students across Colorado and encourages these students to major in computing in college and pursue computing as a career. Hosted this award five times and recognized nearly 270 young women (~170 winners; ~100 runners up) in that time. Worked with local tech companies to underwrite the costs of the awards event (and purchase prizes for the winners) bringing in nearly 80K in support of this important program since Fall 2010.

Associate Chair (January 2010—June 2013): Directly supervised department staff. Assisted Chair with strategic activities and management. Member of Executive Committee. Director, Undergraduate Studies.

Computer Science B.A. Degree Proposal, Review, and Implementation (Summer 2010—June 2013): Successfully led an effort to grow the Department’s undergraduate program by creating a new B.A. degree in Computer Science for Fall 2013. The proposal received strong positive support from campus administration and was formally approved by the College of Engineering and Applied Science in Fall 2010; it was approved by the College of Arts and Sciences in May 2012 and was approved by the Regents of the University of Colorado in November 2012. Participated in the work to implement the degree program during the Spring 2013 semester. This degree program is incredibly popular. It’s first class in Fall 2013 opened with ~240 students; this number grew to ~450 students in Fall 2014 and >600 students in Fall 2015.

Director of Undergraduate Studies (Fall 2008—Spring 2013): Chair of Undergraduate Committee.

Co-Chair of ABET Accreditation Effort (Fall 2008—Fall 2009): Led a comprehensive curriculum review of the undergraduate program, made adjustments to undergraduate policy, and contributed to the creation of the Department's ABET self-study report submitted in May 2009. Led process to create display materials (course profiles, course dossiers, coverage of program outcomes and objectives, assessment workflows, etc.) for the ABET site visit in September 2009. The Department received full accreditation in August 2010, backdated to October 2008, valid until September 2016.

Lead NCWIT (National Center for Women & IT) Pacesetters effort at CU Boulder (Fall 2009—Fall 2012): Founded CU Boulder's NCWIT Pacesetters team in order to join the first cohort of NCWIT Pacesetters in Fall 2009. Pacesetters is an effort to accelerate organizational change that leads to increased recruiting and retention of women in information technology programs such as computer science and ATLAS's Technology Arts & Media certificate. Pacesetter activities include increasing the integration of the computer science and ATLAS curricula, participating in the redesign of CS intro courses, and the creation of the B.A. in CS degree proposal. At the time, these efforts doubled the number of women enrolled in our BS degree program from 8% of majors in 2007 to 16% of majors in 2011.

Chair of CS Diversity Task Force (Fall 2006—Fall 2008): Founding Chair of the Department's Diversity Task Force. Led creation of high-quality recruiting materials for the B.S. degree program. Promoted the adoption of NCWIT best practices in undergraduate courses.

Abstract

The heterogeneity of modern computing environments contributes to the information overload experienced by users. Relationships within and between applications, documents, and processes are often implicit and must be managed and tracked by the user. Hypermedia has been put forward as one approach to organizing these relationships, making them explicit so they can be managed. One approach to providing environment-wide hypermedia services is through the use of open hypermedia systems (OHSs). OHSs are open with respect to the set of systems and information over which hypermedia services can be provided. This research area contrasts with the original approach to hypermedia services which involved developing monolithic systems with a closed set of supported data types (e.g. HyperCard). Given the existence of OHSs, another area of research is developing integration techniques such that applications which existed before the introduction of an OHS can take advantage of the hypermedia services provided by the OHS. This dissertation provides contributions in both of these research fields.

In particular, this work demonstrates techniques which enable OHSs to address the heterogeneity of their computing environments, to leverage the strengths of the World Wide Web (while providing the Web with improved hypermedia services), and to integrate large classes of applications at once. Handling heterogeneity is addressed via a set of flexible abstract hypermedia concepts, application program interfaces in multiple programming languages, support for multiple operating systems, and a low entry barrier to use provided by an architecture designed to reduce the responsibilities of client applications. Integration with the Web is enabled via a scalable architecture for OHSs which is compatible with the Web's architecture and takes advantage of the strengths of the Web's protocols and the familiarity of Web interaction styles. The integration of multiple applications occurs via a technique for making user-interface toolkits (and hence their constructed applications) clients of an OHS.

The dissertation is validated by examining the characteristics of the clients integrated with the exploratory systems developed during the course of this research. The dissertation concludes by positioning this work within the context of large-scale information environments.
