Title: NRG Meeting: Ran Libeskind-Hadas
"CS For All": The Design, Implementation, and Results of a New
Introductory CS Course
Ran Libeskind-Hadas, Harvey Mudd College
"Computer Science for All" is an introductory computer science course taken
by all first-year undergraduate students at Harvey Mudd College, regardless
of their ultimate choice of major. The course is also a popular elective
among students at the other Claremont Colleges and has been adopted by
several other colleges and universities.
The course endeavors to teach students practical skills (i.e., design,
implementation, and testing of programs) while simultaneously conveying the
intellectual beauty and breadth of the discipline. I will describe the
philosophy, design, and implementation of the course as well as its
positive impact on student satisfaction and contributing to near
gender-parity in the CS major.
Ran "RON" Libeskind-Hadas is the department chair and R. Michael Shanahan
Professor of Computer Science at Harvey Mudd College. He received the A.B.
in applied mathematics at Harvard University and the M.S. and Ph.D. in
computer science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His
research interests are in algorithms and computational biology. In
addition, he is interested in computer science education and currently
serves on the U.S. Computing Community Consortium (CCC) Council and is
co-chair of the Computing Research Association's Education Committee
When: Mon Feb 3, 2014 11am - 12pm Eastern Time
