Convener: Richard Eisenberg, CTL Graduate Fellow, CIS
Location: Levine 307
Summary: When teaching a skill new to students, such as programming, it can often be helpful to demonstrate the skill live to your audience. We often do this in computer science courses through “live coding”. Yet, what are the reasons behind this choice? To increase engagement? To familiarize students with the code? To familiarize students with the process of programming? Prof. Stephanie Weirich will lead a discussion on the use of interactive demonstration in the classroom. Please bring your own experiences — both as a student and as a teacher — to join in the conversation.Lunch will be served.
This event is open to the wider university community, though the topic will be of more interest to folks in SEAS. Students and faculty are both encouraged to attend.
