Computer Science Educational Resources Project

by WebSysAdmin last modified 2006-08-11 13:29

We are currently working on the following projects:

  1. Building a repository of syllabi for introductory computer science graphics courses, tailored to fit the needs of various students and the constraints of university resources.
  2. Identifying a set of most-commonly taught concepts in introductory courses.
  3. Maintaining a list of teaching resources for various topics commonly taught in graphics classes.
  4. Establishing a list of sources and review of graphics software that available at no cost.
  5. Encouraging the submission of papers, panels, workshops on issues of interest to computer science graphics educators.

All interested educators are invited to participate. Current possibilities include

  • a "syllabus survey" of introductory graphics courses
  • developing teaching material (images, demonstrations, interactive tools) to support selected topics in an introductory course
  • identifying and evaluating free or low-cost software for use in the classroom, laboratory or in completing homework.
