Speaker: 
Richert Wang (UC Irvine)
Host: 
Phill Conrad

Abstract

This talk will focus on my teaching philosophies, teaching goals, classroom management techniques, and student advisement strategies for various courses in computer science. Ideas on how I plan on working with UCSB’s College of Engineering and College of Creative Studies in order to facilitate students’ success in academia and long-term career goals will be discussed. A short sample lesson on how Java utilizes the stack and the heap using live-coding with various programming scenarios will be provided.
