The E-Textbook Opportunity: The Time is Now for SUNY, Phase 2
Source: SUNY IITG
Duration: 1 year
PI/CoPIs: Dean Hendrix, Assistant Director of University Libraries, University at Buffalo
Charles Lyons, Electronic Resources Librarian, University at Buffalo
Mary Jo Orzech, Director, Drake Memorial Library, College at Brockport
Pamela Peters, Director, Resnick Library, SUNY Delhi
Project Description: The SUNY Delhi library will be participating in this project with SUNY Brockport and University at Buffalo (UB). This project is a continuation of a previously funded IITG pilot ("Phase 1"), and leverages the knowledge and technical expertise gained in Phase 1 to shape and refine the features, licenses, implementation, and future of e-textbooks within SUNY. This phase 2 of the project will explore new assessment methodologies related to student learning outcomes, develop longitudinal data sets for pinpointing e-textbook use trends among specific student populations, analyze the impact of price on e-textbook adoption, and investigate the feasibility of a student-centered e-textbook model.
New Mechatronics Bachelor of Technology (BT) Program
Source: SUNY High Needs
Duration: 1 year
PI: Eric Robert, Dean Applied Sciences and Building Technologies
Project description: SUNY High Needs funding will help to support SUNY Delhi’s initial efforts to establish a new Mechatronics Technology Bachelor of Technology (BT) program. The goal of the new BT program is to ensure that program graduates will be well prepared to enter New York State’s expanding advanced manufacturing workforce. SUNY Delhi’s BT in Mechatronics Technology will prepare technicians who are able to design, fabricate, install, program, operate, and maintain the automated machinery common in today’s rapidly changing manufacturing environments. This multidisciplinary degree will focus on the integration of CAD, welding, machining, electrical controls, pneumatics/hydraulics, and programming with a strong experiential internship component.
The Effect of a Cloud-Based Patient Simulator on Student Learning Outcomes in an On-line Health Assessment Course
Source: SUNY IITG
Duration: 1 year
PI: Susan Deane, Assistant Professor, School of Nursing
Project Description: SUNY Delhi will assess student outcomes utilizing the interactive digital clinical experience (DCE), ShadowHealth, for an online Health Assessment course in the RN-BSN program. Using ShadowHealth, students will interact with a virtual patient in a virtual hospital setting conducting health history and system-based assessments. Student learning outcomes will be evaluated through the use of grading rubrics, module summaries, and written transcripts of student activities within the program. The relationship between student demographic characteristics, class retention, assessment of student learning outcomes, and student satisfaction among students using ShadowHealth will be identified. This use of technology is expected to have a significant impact on nursing students to achieve successful course and program outcomes.

New York State Bioenergy Learning Collaborative (NYSBLC)
Source: SUNY 2020
Amount: $15,000,000 for three campuses (SUNY Delhi $5,000,000)
Duration: 5 years
PI: Joel Smith
Project Description: SUNY 2020 will fund a NYS Bioenergy Learning Collaborative (NYSBLC) at SUNY College of Technology at Delhi, SUNY College of Agriculture and Technology at Cobleskill and SUNY College of Agriculture at Morrisville. The NYSBLC proposes to develop three commercial-scale, one megawatt (1 MW) anaerobic biodigesters at each campus, resulting in energy production, waste reduction for the expanding dairy industry, and training academic and applied expertise for a scalable waste reduction energy producing initiative. The project helps to create an economical avenue to dispose of regional agricultural residuals including cow, horse and other livestock manure, and helps regional farms cost-effectively expand operations including increased capacity to handle waste from animals by supporting the expansion of Combined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO) operations.
