"Teaching Computer Science as a Multi-disciplinary Field"

Monday June 04, 2012 09:30 AM
Location: 3211, EBII NCSU Centennial Campus
(Visitor parking instructions)



In this talk, I will discuss why I believe that computer science should be taught as a diverse and multi-disciplinary subject. I will also describe an adaptive teaching process with feedback based on students’ assessment: a process which incorporates tools, references, help for the students, hands-on projects and in-class experience based on problem solving and bonus work.
