Abstract: Teaching is the most critical part of academia. Good pedagogy can have a far-reaching influence on the lives of students, most of whom are on the verge of stepping into the real world. In this talk, I will discuss how my adoption of active learning and interactive teaching has created an inclusive environment and improved the student experience in my courses. Next, I will talk about my contributions and future plans for advancing computing education research by evaluating the effectiveness of existing pedagogy and developing and implementing new pedagogical strategies and resources. Additionally, I will talk about my interests and ideas in building a diverse, inclusive community by expanding opportunities for and improving the recruitment and retention of underserved computing students at NCSU. I will demonstrate examples of my pedagogy and active learning approach within introductory Computer Science.
