Teaching Overview

Teaching Statement

Click here to see my teaching philosophy 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 Fall 2020 at the University of Georgia.

CSCI 1300: Introduction to Programming with Python

This course is an introduction to algorithmic problem solving using the Python programming language: objects, values, types, expressions, simple statements, compound statements, inputs, and outputs, and is intended for anyone who is interested in learning how to program.

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 4800/6800: Human-Computer Interaction

Issues in the design, development, and evaluation of user interfaces for computer systems. Concepts in human factors, usability, and interface design, and the effects of human capabilities and limitations on interaction with computer systems.

Courses Taught

Below is a table that summarizes the courses that I’ve taught at the University of Georgia. Except for CSCI 1301L where I was a Lab Instructor, I was the Instructor of Record for all courses listed. Class enrollments generally exceeded 48 with individual class sizes as large as 120.
