Teaching philosophy

I taught my first CS class in 1984. Since then my teaching has slowly transitioned from a "sage on the stage" to a "guide on the side" approach. The ultimate goal is to help produce competent computer scientists—individuals who are valuable contributors to the profession and society.

Inspiring Quotes

  • Ars longa, vita brevis. (Unknown)
  • Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness—all foes to real understanding. Likewise, tolerance or broad, wholesome charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in our little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. (Mark Twain)
  • If humanity does not opt for integrity we are through completely. It is absolutely touch and go. Each one of us could make the difference. (Buckminster Fuller)

Teaching philosophy

I taught my first CS class in 1984. Since then I have had a variety of teaching experiences and responsibilities. My teaching has slowly transitioned from a "sage on the stage" to a "guide on the side" approach. The ultimate goal is to help produce competent computer scientists—individuals who are valuable contributors to the profession and society.

Inspiring Quotes

  • Ars longa, vita brevis. (Unknown)
  • Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness—all foes to real understanding. Likewise, tolerance or broad, wholesome charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in our little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. (Mark Twain)
  • If humanity does not opt for integrity we are through completely. It is absolutely touch and go. Each one of us could make the difference. (Buckminster Fuller)
