I am interested in exploring STEM education outreach approaches that elucidate effective intersectional education strategies, and increase access to STEM education and interest in STEM careers. This venture happens through development of media that will be shared and tested among students in the Boulder area I am also interested in characterizing exploratory learning behaviors in humans. This research approach involves the development of intuitive learning tools that collect kinematic data about novel encounters.
ATLS 1300 - Computational Foundations 1
Fall 2019 / Spring 2020 / Summer 2020 / Fall 2020 / Spring 2021 / Summer 2021 / Fall 2021
Instructs non-computer science students in analyzing problems and synthesizing programs for the solution,emphasizing good engineering practices for program construction, documentation, testing, and debugging. Uses Java for programming projects. Formerly ATLS 2010.
ATLS 4529 - Advanced Special Topics: Critical Perspectives in Technology
Analyzes critical perspectives in technology, art and media. Within these courses, students will develop vocabularies, theoretical perspectives and critical approaches relevant to technology and its effects on culture and society. May be repeated up to 9 total credit hours. Same as ATLS 5529.
ATLS 5650 - Introduction to Programming
Fall 2020 / Fall 2021
Provides a hands-on introduction to programming logic, environments, and execution using Ruby as the primary programming language. Covers basic programming principle, syntax, design patterns, and best industry practices while focusing on developing elegant, problem-solving skills through code.
