Save the date: 2019 Teaching Computational Thinking Skills with MATLAB Workshop

The Fifth Annual Teaching Computation with MATLAB workshop will be held October 20-22, 2019 at Carleton College in Northfield, MN

To address the need to strengthen computational thinking skills, this workshop will bring together faculty in STEM fields who teach computation and are interested in strengthening their skills and developing MATLAB-based teaching resources.

Details about the workshop and application process will become available in early-April.

Who should attend the workshop?

The workshop program is designed for undergraduate and graduate educators in Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Geoscience, Math, Engineering, and allied fields who are teaching computational thinking in their courses using MATLAB. Participants will work with peers in their disciplines, other disciplines, and representatives from MathWorks to discuss best practices for teaching computation and design activities and courses that incorporate MATLAB.

What happens at the workshop?

Workshop activities will include demonstrations of MATLAB teaching activities, hands-on MATLAB sessions, plenary talks, discussion panels, and opportunities to work in small groups on activity/course design. Sessions, panels, talks, and groups will be led by faculty peers who teach with MATLAB in their courses.
