PROYECTOS EN DESARROLLO/PROJECTS IN DEVELOPMENT:

El Proyecto Juarez Lincoln Marti tiene, como uno de sus objetivos principales, el incentivar el desarrollo de proyectos conjuntos iberoamericanos, de beneficio general. En particular, a traves de los anos hemos impulsando los tres siguientes proyectos:

PROYECTO PARA AYUDAR A MEJORAR LA EDUCACION ESTADISTICA APLICADA Y LA FUNCION DEL MAESTRO. Entre Octubre del 2011 y Junio del 2012, trabajamos en la oficina de Investigacion de la Facultad (Sponsored Research) del SUNY Institute of Technology, desde donde desarrollamos planes, utiles para ayudar a nuestras instituciones a desarrollar mas ampliamente su investigacion, ademas de desarrollar otros temas de pedagogia general y estadistica, de evaluacion de alumnos y de creacion de programas que atraigan mas estudiantes a carreras de ciencias e ingenieria.

PROYECTO PARA DESARROLLAR MAS PUBLICACIONES DE ESTADISTICA APLICADA EN ESPANOL. RCE, la Revista Colombiana de Estadistica, publico sobre este tema, en el verano de 2011, un numero Especial. Su pagina en red esta en Internet. La revista de IASI, el Instituto Inter Americano de Estadistica, tambien ha publicado recientemente un numero completo de articulos aplicados en Espanol, y ha continuado publicando articulos estadisticos, en ingles y espanol sobre aplicaciones. La revista de SOCHE, la Sociedad Chilena de Estadistica, tambien ha publicado excelentes articulos sobre aplicaciones y educacion estadisticia, en ingles, que pueden encontrar en su pagina del Internet. La revista internet Hipotesis Alternativa, boletin de IASE para America Latina, tambien publica articulos en espanol sobre Educacion Estadistica. Hipotesis resume trabajos de la revista SERJ, Statistics Education Research Journal. Su pagina internet es: Hipotesis .

PROYECTO PARA ORGANIZAR UN INSTITUTO PASI/NSF SOBRE MODELACION ESTADISTICA DE PROBLEMAS ECOLOGICOS. En el 2009 se organizo un grupo de interes, que comenzo trabajos exploratorios para someter una propuesta de INSTITUTO PASI al NSF. Tras varios intercambios, el grupo reconocio que no existen todavia condiciones objetivas para someter una propuesta ganadora y que habia que comenzar por crearlas. Dichas condiciones previas incluyen la promocion y creacion de mas publicaciones de estadistica aplicada, para incentivar una mayor produccion de trabajos aplicados, sobre todo a la industria, economia y ecologia, para asi incrementar el numero de profesionales y alumnos interesados en utilizar la estadistica para resolver problemas practicos socioeconomicos. Este proyecto empalma con el que sigue abajo.

PROYECTO PARA ORGANIZAR INSTITUTOS DE ESTADISTICA APLICADA INDUSTRIA-UNIVERSIDAD para contribuir al desarrollo economico de la region. Utilizando previas experiencias en el estudio de tales problemas, de propuestas sometidas al NSF, y otras organizaciones que han acogido con interes esta idea, asi como a organizaciones profesionales. Hemos creado una nueva pagina en la red, el INSTITUTO DE ESTADISTICA APLICADA Y MEJORA CONTINUA (IEAMC), que puede accederse en IEAMC. Las razones para la creacion de tales Institutos, asi como ejemplos de sus trabajos y organizacion, se encuentran en un articulo academico. Cualquier colaboracion es bienvenida y sera reconocida como contribucion de sus autor(es).

The above courses are based in the 30 years of research, teaching, consulting and practical experiences of the Project Director, and his extensive writings in applied industrial statistics. The pedagody used and course objectives are discussed in ISI-2001 .

Solidarity/Solidaridad

Teaching in different provincial cities, we confirmed the needs of some of the local population. The JLM Project then included additional activities such as the collection of toys, clothes and school materials for Latin American children, among LaFayette High School students and others in our Headquarters in Syracuse NY. As a result, the JLM Project has provided clothing after the Puebla earthquate in 2000 and Veracruz floodings of 2002; toys, clothes, and school supplies for children with AIDS in the Dominican Republic, as well as for Quechua children in Andean schools in Cayambe, Ecuador, and in the Guerrero Sierra, in Mexico, among other places.

JLM Project International Scope/Desarrollo Internacional

The Juarez Lincoln Marti Project concentrated initially, on Mexico. However, the Project Director has been involved in many International Education activities and with several working groups in Iberoamerica. Starting in 1995, Romeu taught, various workshops on the use of statistics and simulation software, learning groups, technology infusion and contextual projects in statistical education, at two campuses of the University of Galicia, and at two of the University of the Basque Country. In addition, other Iberoamerican countries have been served by the Project, including Venezuela, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador.

In 1997, the Project started a faculty development program at Romulo Gallegos University, UNERG , in the Orinoco plains, Venezuela, where it developed an innovative faculty apprenticeship model. The UNERG project was sponsored by Fundayacucho, the Venezuelan government educational agency, as well as by the World Bank.

Project Philosophy and Goals/Filosofia y Objetivos

The Juarez-Lincoln-Marti Project feels a great pride for its long history of providing professional and academic development in Iberoamerica. It strives to build a better US-Ibero American understanding and to help forge stronger working relations between Ibero American and North American higher education, academic, and research communities, as well as between its peoples. With this objective, The Project has instituted an Annual Award, to recognize an Iberoamerican educator for his or her work in our midst.

The JLM Project also strives to promote and to help develop Ibero American International Professionals that may help consolidate such stronger links between peoples of different nations and cultures, especially within our own Region. Please help us improve our work by filling and emailing us the following Survey.

The reasons for all these efforts are described in a series of Spanish and English language newspaper articles, written during our frequent stages abroad, and published in journals of the US, Mexico and Spain.

Project Origins/Inicios del Proyecto

The Juarez-Lincoln-Marti Project was created in 1994, as the SUNY-Mexico Exchange Project. Under this first name it functioned between 1994 and 1998 when its Director, Dr. Jorge Luis Romeu, took early retirement from SUNY. After 1998, the Juarez-Lincoln-Marti Project adopted its more appropriate present name, created this Web Page, found new sources of funding to support its scholarship programs, as well as for starting new programs in education. A PPT Presentation on the JLM Project Achievements, was given in 2013 at the Headquarters of Fulbright

Faculty Scholarships and Textbook Donation Programs/Becas y Donacion de Libros

Since its inception in 1994, the Project established contacts with many Mexican universities and research centers, travelled to Mexico carrying scores of donated mathematics and science textbooks, software and other teaching materials, sent by mail scores of textbooks to universities in Latin America and Spain, maintained two email information lists, sending monthly bulletins for Academics and researchers, and found full scholarships that have brought 18 Mexican faculty to participate in several SUNY/FACT Conferences for Instructional Technology (CIT). You can read the Abstract of one of our CIT Panels, presented by the Juarez Project Scholars that attended one of these Conferences .

Faculty Development Program/Programas de Desarrollo Academico

In the Spring of 2000, JLM Project Director obtained a Grant from the US Department of State, to deliver some faculty development workshops at Universidad de las Americas, UDLA, Puebla, in Mexico among other institutions. With the proceeds of this grant, the Juarez-Lincoln-Marti Project taught two other workshops on Technology in Education and launched a new program to provide additional faculty development workshops to other Iberoamerican public and provincial institutions. In 2001, the Project Director was accepted into the Fulbright Senior Speaker Specialist Program, through which he has given longer workshops and courses (four and six weeks) in universities in Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador. With the proceeds of these grants, the Project has partially underwritten courses and workshops in other institutions.

Projects in Cyberspace/Proyectos via Internet

The Project has also worked on international education via the Internet. With a group of four American and Latin American educators, he participated in the complete development of an Operations Research masters level curriculum for the Universidad del Comahue, in Neuquen, Argentina. Through the Internet the Juarez Lincoln Marti Project strives to continue its international education work in Spain, Mexico, Dominican Rep., Ecuador, Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil and other countries.

Dissemination

Educational and environmental research information is periodically circulated via electronic bulletins sent through our email lists. The Project also disseminates information about technology, job opportunities, and web resources of interest such as the Portal ERIC . Information about Ecological issues is the main concern of the Great Lakes Research Consortium (GLRC) . Ecological research information is periodically emailed to its members. Both lists are free and open to the public. If you are interested in joining just send them an email.
