👋 Teachers! Introduce yourself here


(Brian Simpson) #1713

Hi all,

My name is Brian Simpson and I teach AP Computer Science A at University Laboratory School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I’m hoping to replace my current workflow with GitHub Classroom. I currently post .java files to Moodle, students download files to computers in our lab or to their personal computers, then they upload their completed assignments to repl.it. It does allow me to run their code (as long as it doesn’t involve graphics) and comment quickly without having to waste time moving their files around, but I think GitHub would allow the same and more. I’m also very excited about the possibility of easy pair programming and/or group projects where the students legitimately use GitHub to collaborate like in industry.

(Subramanya Vajiraya) #1719

Hello everyone,

I’m Subramanya, Solutions Designer/DevOps Lead at Office of the Pro Vice Chancellor (Education), UNSW Sydney. You can find me on Twitter or Github as @svajiraya :wink:

I’ve been in IT Sector for a little over 7 years. I have worked in most areas of IT (Support, Development, Infrastructure, Security, Architecture) and now I’m managing a team specialising in Cloud Computing and Educational Intelligence at the University of New South Wales. I have a Masters in IT from UNSW specialised in Internetworking and Bachelor of Engineering from VTU India specialising in Information Science and Engineering.

I’m an Academic Staff for COMP9900 Course this semester at UNSW with over 180 students enrolled in the Course. Students in this course tackle real-world problems in Higher Education Industry and build projects as part of the final assessment. We have employed over 120 students in our department over the past 3 years to work with us as “Student as partner” where they work with University Employees and assist us with our projects bringing in their ideas and perspectives.

In my opinion this is the best thing a University can do to help students advance their career, gain valuable experience and Help the university build projects which benefits next generation of students.

(Anthony Berent) #1723

Hi, I am Anthony, from London, England. I am a former software engineer and now retraining as a computing teacher. I know git and github well from my career as a software engineer, so seeing github for education appearing it looked worth investigating for possible future use in the classroom.

(Rose T) #1730

Hi folks,

I am a high school computer science teacher in New York and a guest lecturer at a nearby college two nights a week. I have been teaching for 19 years, the last 10 have been exclusively computer science and web development. From Intro to CS through AP CS A, students aged 14 to 18, mixed abilities.

I was introduced to github via CS50 for AP two years ago. I want to incorporate it more and need to increase my comfort level. None of my students have access to a command line, so I am exclusively using Eclipse with Git, or Visual Studio with Git.

Getting ready for a week break, thought I would spend some of it watching tutorials and getting better acquainted.

All the best,
Rose

Hi, I’m Steve Bitner. I am an Assistant Professor in my first year at the University of West Florida. I am a long time user of GitHub coming back to academia after a 9 year stint in industry. I have been using GitHub and GitHub Classroom in my courses and generally love the experience and the exposure it gives to students.


(José María García) #1732

Hi all!

I’m Jose M. Garcia. I’m an Associate Professor at the University of Seville, in Spain. In my research group we all use extensively GitHub for our research projects and for students work on our software engineering and devops related courses. Currently I’m preparing a big overhaul of a course on configuration management and software processes, so I am quite enthusiastic with using GitHub at its full potential with my students :slight_smile:

Cheers,
Jose.
