报告人:加州大学伯克利分校Dan Garcia教授

报告摘要:At a time when computing is so much a part of all of our lives, has incredible job opportunities, and is so empowering, most students graduate high school without having had any introduction to computer science. A decade ago in the United States, the CSforALL movementwas launched to broaden participation in computing to those traditionally underrepresented. This talk will reflect on the current state of that initiative, and introduce the "Beauty and Joy of Computing(BJC)" course, which has received worldwide attention and currently has 65% female enrollment at UC Berkeley, among the highest in the nation.

报告人简介:Dan Garcia is a Teaching Professor in the EECS Department at the University of California, Berkeley. He has served on the ACM Education Board, the Computer Science Principles Development Committee, is a member of the CSforALL consortium, and was chosen as an ACM Distinguished Educator in 2012. He has won all four of the department's teaching awards, and holds the record for the highest teaching effectiveness ratings (6.7/7) in the history of the department's introductory courses.
