Winter 2020. CSCI 1105. Introduction to Programming.
Undergraduate Program, Faculty of Computer Science, Dalhousie University.
Instructor: Dr. Helen Ai He. 110 students.
The format of this class primarily included live coding / problem-solving examples in Python, and hand-tracing code on the whiteboard. Students were expected to purchase and read the textbook, so that in class, we focused primarily on experiential, interactive learning. Students also had the option to do “mindset exercises” for 1% bonus, which emphasized a learning mindset for how to handle stress, challenges and failure. Final student evaluations are here. My evaluation: 4.46/5.0 (CS faculty mean: 4.07/5.0).
