INFO 1201: Computational Reasoning 1: Expression and Media Transformation

Instructor

This course is a hands-on introduction to create, invent, and build with computer programming. No programming experience is necessary and all backgrounds are welcome. Students will become exposed to high-level computational concepts and practices that include algorithms, data, parallelism, abstraction, and debugging. Assignments and projects will involve learning to program using the Scratch and Python programming languages. The creative and problem-solving strategies introduced in this course are applicable across many domains beyond information and computer sciences.

ATLS 1220: Introduction to Computer Science

Teaching Assistant

This course is designed to introduce students to the central ideas of computer science, to instill ideas and practices of computational thinking, and to have students engage in activities that show how computing and computer science change the world. Rather than focus on a specific tool or programming language, this course focuses on the creative aspects of the field. Students will learn how to use computing as a means to understand and solve problems, reflect upon the cultural impact of technology, demonstrate computational thinking skills by building computer programs and games, learn information retrieval skills by researching and remixing media, and engage in other creative endeavors of computer science.
