“Improved lecture hall experience for CS100M students using Personal Response System and Mobile Presentations”

Daisy Fan

About

CS100M is a large introductory computer programming course that serves around 180 to over 300 students each semester. One of the biggest challenges in teaching this course is to make the large lecture effective, interesting, and inspiring for the students whose programming background ranges from no experience at all to substantial experience in one of the two languages taught. This proposal sets out a strategy to improve lecture given in a large lecture hall so that students participate actively and the instructor can get real time feedback on students' learning and has improved mobility in the lecture room to give a dynamic lecture. Two technologies that would support this proposal are the Personal Response System, and wireless technology with tablet computer for giving a mobile and dynamic presentation.
