I have moved!
As of January 1st, 2008, I have accepted a faculty position at the University of California, Santa Barbara. My new job is a joint appointment, with a 50/50 split between the Dept. of Computer Science, and the College of Creative Studies.
Come visit my new web page!
I am grateful to all my friends at UD for their support over the years, and I wish you all the best. I am also grateful to my friends in User Services and NSS for keeping this web page up for now. I've left most of the remaining content intact, as it may still be useful to former colleagues and students.
What I (used to) do:
My appointment was focused on undergraduate education. My primary responsibility was to coordinate and teach courses in the CIS Department's introductory programming sequence: CISC105/106, CISC181 and CISC220.
CISC105 is an introductory programming course taught in C (that may soon be retired and replaced with a new course, CISC108). CISC106 is an alternative introductory programming course for Engineering Majors taught in MATLAB. CISC181 is an intermediate programming course taught in C++. CISC220 is the data structures course (also taught in C++) that lies at the heart of the Computer Science curriculum.
The CISC181/CISC220 sequence is a pre-requisite for almost all 300 and 400 level courses in Computer Science.
My service roles included
- serving as an Assessment Fellow as part of a University-wide effort improve learning outcomes.
- serving as faculty advisor for the student ACM chapter.
- CISC105 - General Computer Science (C)
- CISC106 - General Computer Science for Engineers (MATLAB)
- CISC181 - Introduction to Computer science
- honors section (C++)
- CISC220 - Data Structures (C++)
- CISC370 - Object Oriented Programming in Java
