Integrating Parallelism Throughout the Undergraduate Computing Curriculum

SESSION: Integrating Parallelism Throughout the Undergraduate Computing Curriculum

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Cordelia M. Brown, Deborah Bennett, Vijay Pai


The CISE Pathways to Revitalize Undergraduate Computing Education (CPATH) group at Purdue University is seeking to engage computing educators, researchers, and industrial professionals in discussions involving the effects of the multicore revolution on the integration of parallelism in the undergraduate computing curriculum. The CPATH Birds of a Feather (BOF) will focus on topics related to integrating parallelism in both hardware and software throughout the undergraduate computing curriculum, and the affect of industrial trends on the undergraduate computing currciulum. The CPATH BOF will also seek to present, discuss, and disseminate preliminary findings of data collected and analyzed as a part of a National Science Foundation sponsored CPATH grant awarded to Purdue University. The grant seeks to support the development of a curriculum model of teaching parallelism in both hardware and software computing courses beginning at the first year. The CPATH grant will support registration, lodging, and limited travel for a limited number of participants for the CPATH BOF. The CPATH group is seeking participants interested in the following topics: Parallelism with hardware and software in the curriculum; Computing curriculum reform; Computing curriculum evaluation; Parallel debugging tools used in the curriculum; Parallel computing experience studies; Parallel projects in undergraduate course; Parallel hardware and software demonstrations; Parallel program development; and Any other related topic to parallelism in computing education.
