Office Hours, Spring 2014

My Office Hours for the Fall 2014 semester are Mondays, 9-10 am; Tuesdays, 1-2 pm; and Wednesdays, 1-2 pm. Unless I notify you otherwise, I guarantee that I'll be in my office during these times to meet with students.

 

I will of course also make an appointment to meet with you if you can't make it during my office hours. I do NOT make any Friday appointments.

 

Finally, I'm in the office for a good part of each day. If my door is open, feel free to drop in, though I reserve the right to turn you away if I'm busy. If my door is closed, it means I'm busy doing something; in those cases, please only interrupt in case of an emergency.

Research Interests

My primary research area is computer science education.

My computer science education research is primarily concerned with research that provides useful teaching, advising, and curriculum development techniques to computer science educators. I'm currently focusing my research on how we can use technology to improve the learning of beginning programming students. Specifically, I'm evaluating how Second Life tutorials for introductory programming topics affect student learning for those topics.

Athletics

I've enjoyed cycling for some time now, and I completed numerous centuries (100 mile bike rides) in the late 80s and early 90s. One of those centuries was even rated by Bicycling Magazine as one of the 10 toughest centuries in the country. Why? Because it had over 10,000 feet of climbing!

Something strange happens to your head when you do that much riding (and climbing), so I decided I should try running next. I've completed the L.A. Marathon, the Pueblo Marathon, the Pikes Peak Ascent, and numerous shorter races as well.

Of course at that point, I only needed to add one more sport (swimming) to really go crazy. I did my first triathlon in 1993, and I completed a number of sprint-distance, Olympic-distance, and Half-Ironman races in the mid-90s. The ultimate, so far, was when I completed an Ironman-distance race in 1999. Swimming 2.4 miles, cycling 112 miles, then running 26.2 miles makes for a long day!

Palmares

In cycling, your palmares are like your resume of significant results. I'll abuse the term a bit here by listing most of the races I've done without worrying about whether or not my results were significant! Click here for my palmares.
