Stephen Harper Kirner Chair of Computer Science
Office: SCCT 1006
Hirshfield served as an original member of the Liberal Arts Computer Science consortium which developed and published what is today the accepted model curriculum for a B.A. degree in computer science.
Along with his Hamilton colleague, Richard W. Decker, he has co-authored a number of nationally recognized text and software packages and was awarded the EDUCOM/NCRIPTAL award for best curriculum innovation. His current research activities are conducted primarily with his Hamilton colleague (and daughter-in-law) Leanne Hirshfield ’02, and focus on the application of brain measurement and computer learning technologies to the design and evaluation of human-computer interfaces.
