Sarah. You might consider starting a topic, “Introducing GitHub in the classroom” asking other teachers what’s been successful for them.
Welcome Eric. Would you be willing to create a topic, for case studies, where you and other long-time users might provide additional details of your use of GitHub in class and answer questions others might have?
Hi Andrew. Please tell your family and other educators you know about https://education.github.community. Consider sharing the link on social media if you think that will help get the word out about our new community.
Sure! I’ll do that in the next days! It’s great seeing all the people trying to dip their toes, it will be a pleasure to share my experience!
Hey Nitesh. It doesn’t look like you’ve enrolled as a teacher with us yet. As an educator you can apply here for unlimited free private repositories for your individual account and for any classroom organizations you have.
Hello Zach. I hope you’ll encourage your instructors to participate here as well.
I am a phd student at @UniRegensburg. I am teaching basic and advanced programming and software engineering classes. I encourage (and sometimes force) my students to use version control (especially git) for all their assignments and projects.
My teaching focuses on using the browser as a platform for rich applications. In my research I am trying to understand programmers individual behaviour while implementing software.
Kind regards and many thanks to github,
Chad. Welcome. Have you requested a swag bag for the upcoming semester yet?
Tommy. Would you be interested in talking about how to successfully design a curriculum that maximizes students’ employement opportunities?
Hi, I’m Phil Schielke and teach Computer Science in Austin TX and my github handle is philschielke. Excited to use github in the classroom this fall!
Hey Bunkermaster. I’d to see a post by you on “Inspiring students through open source.”
Greetings Scott, I’m working on a couple new courses right now but I will try to squeeze a discussion starter on that topic.
Hi - Jim Bowring here. I teach Software Engineering two-course sequence at the College of Charleston and depend on Github and open source projects. This paper details my efforts. I intend to use more of the Github teaching resources going forward. Cheers!
I’m a professor at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, MI.
I primarily teach programming (Java, C#, PHP, Python, Android, etc.) and am in charge of our Graduate and Professional Information Security program.
When I’m not teaching I tend to work with the POSSE group (http:/foss2serve.org)
I’ve used Github quite often for student projects. I’m requiring it for my Fall classes and received my huge box of handouts a couple of week ago from GitHub (thanks again).
I look forward to learning much from everyone.
I am James Abela and I teach Computer Science. My students are using github to store their Python Challenges. You are very welcome to join in too at:
P.S. If you want to add a link to your school’s assignment page, just let me know. (I use a Google Form)
