Teaching Overview

Teaching Statement

Click here to see my teaching statement, which reflects my long-term goal to integrate open science, active open educational resources, and peer-based active learning in a way that facilitates effective, low-anxiety computer science education at scale so that as many students as possible can actively engage in discipline-specific activities while learning.

Currently Teaching

Below is a list of the classes I am currently teaching in Spring 2020 at the University of Georgia.

CSCI 1302: Software Development

Software development techniques in an object-oriented computer language. An intermediate programming course in Java emphasizing systems methods, top-down design, testing, modularity, and structured techniques. Applications from areas of numeric and non-numeric processing and data structures.

CSCI 3030: Computing, Ethics, and Society

Introduction to social and ethical issues relating to computer science and information technology. Topics include privacy, intellectual property, open source software, the digital divide, globalization, professional ethics, social justice issues, and current events. Students should have a working knowledge of personal computing.
