Computing is integral to many subjects we teach at the undergraduate level – from creating multimedia, to harnessing big data, to modelling complex processes. A barrier, however, can be accessing the software when and where you need it. In this presentation, Dr. Nick Bock (Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour) will share approaches to delivering software and data to students’ own devices in a classroom with a focus on enhanced student and instructor experiences. Specifically, Dr. Bock will demonstrate a cloud-computing method used recently in an undergraduate course on campus that successfully taught programming to students from a range of backgrounds. Participants are encouraged to discuss their own computing needs for their courses and to share experiences.
