Abstract: This talk will be an overview of four principles that guide my course design and teaching: be active, embrace remote, focus on fundamentals, and be relevant. I will describe why I use each principle, and give brief explanations of how I have enacted them into my courses. This talk will also include a brief discussion of degree progression issues, and how I have addressed some of the issues to improve my current institution's B.S. Computer Science curriculum.
