CSE 590ET Seminar Overview

As of 2005 Winter, this is the new wiki for the CS education seminar CSE 590ET. Although it is officially titled Educational Technology, the seminar's topics include anything related to the practice of teaching CS, including general engineering education. The seminar is open to anyone interested in CS/engineering education (including undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty, regardless of department). In a typical week, we read a short article and meet for an informal discussion.

Attendees should subscribe to the seminar mailing list, whose web archives are available for list members.

The seminar is affiliated with the Education and Technology research group in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. Home pages for past offerings are linked on the department's main page for CSE 590ET. Contact Richard Anderson for more information.
