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
