Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Apr 5, 2019
suite 309, DeWitt Wallace Library

Paul Cantrell, Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science will present “Notes from a Team Project Success Story."  Group work can create some of college’s most rewarding experiences, but can also elicit dread from students and professors alike. The Computer Science program has found success with group work in Software Design and Development, a perennially popular course that focuses on semester-long team projects. Paul will walk through the mechanics of the course, and share some of the teaching strategies that help it succeed. He will also talk about the compromises the course’s approach to group work requires, and the pedagogical limits of its approach. There will be demos of student software!  All faculty welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
