Bob Brown, about 2014
Current Classes: Spring, 2017
Spring office hours: T/Th 9:15 AM – 10:45 PM and 12:15 – 1:45;
also by appointment.

I earned the master's degree in computer science from Southern Polytechnic State back when it was Southern College of Technology and the Ph.D. degree in computer information systems from Nova Southeastern University. I have been teaching at SPSU, now merged into Kennesaw State University, since January, 1996.

Teaching has followed a 30-year career in information technology beginning in 1969, and in medical informatics since 1974 when I began working with the Medical Association of Georgia to develop the methodology for medical care review which assures quality and appropriateness of medical care for Medicare patients.

I teach because it's rewarding to help students have the "Aha! experience," and that happens several times each term. It makes me feel really good to help others learn the things I know and to learn new things myself in the process.

You can send e-mail to me at: Bob dot Brown at kennesaw dot edu or stop by J-382 during office hours. Other contact information has its own page.

If you are thinking about taking one or more of my classes, you will want to read what I have to say about my teaching philosophy and course workload. Before you ask me to "overload" you into a course, please read what I have to say about course capacity overloads. If you're applying for a job or graduate school, read about recommendations or references from me.

Why do professors seem so busy with only a few classes? Read How I Spent Summer 'Vacation' by Eszter Hargittai. So, I don't have time to be sick. Neither do you; you may also want to read my web rant about vaccinations.
