Clinical-Track Faculty Candidate: Jeremy Morris
Computer Science Education - The Changing Landscape
The role of a clinical professor places a special emphasis on education - specifically for undergraduate and Masters level students.
In this talk I will present two facets of that focus on education.
First a sample of my classroom teaching style will be provided via a mock session on the subject of the Relational Model for databases.
Following that I will discuss some thoughts on online courses, which have rapidly become a major issue that impacts the core educational mission of every department on campus.
