background
Background
  • Vision – to build a community that will lead the way to make systematic changes in the way computing concepts are integrated into various undergraduate disciplines
    • Goal 1: identifying problems / opportunities / needs in teaching computing concepts in non-CS disciplines
    • Goal 2: mapping computing concepts to the needs of these disciplines
  • A series of four workshops are held under the LIKES initiative
the scu likes workshop
The SCU LIKES Workshop
  • Theme: defining problems and identifying applications of the knowledge society
    • Held on Nov. 30 – Dec. 1, 2007, 8:30 am - 5 pm both days
    • Venue: Santa Clara University
      • Located in the San Francisco Bay area and Silicon Valley

  • Totally 34 participants from the east coast to Hawaii
workshop deliverables
Workshop Deliverables
  • Mapping of Computing Concepts
    • Logic, data structure, HCI, DB, IP, SE, programming, algorithms, visualization, graphs and trees, etc.
    • Mapping of concepts to applications
  • Importance and Ease of Learning these concepts
    • Social context and IP rated to be most important and most easy to learn
    • Graphs and trees, modeling and simluation, and programming rated to be least important and least easy to learn
  • Concepts maps

Please read the workshop report for details

summary
Summary
  • Identified concepts and problems in different disciplines
  • Identified disciplines that we can focus on in subsequent workshops
  • Fruitful first steps of the LIKES initiative
    • A group of scholars formed
    • Concepts, applications, disciplines
