CSinParallel: An incremental approach to adding PDC throughout the CS curriculum
SESSION: CSinParallel: An incremental approach to adding PDC throughout the CS curriculum
EVENT TYPE: HPC Educator
TIME: 1:30PM - 5:00PM
Presenter(s):Richard A. Brown, Elizabeth Shoop, Joel Adams
CSinParallel.org offers an incremental approach for feasibly adding PDC (parallel and distributed computing) to existing undergraduate courses and curricula, using small (1-3 class days) teaching modules. Designed for flexible use in multiple courses throughout a CS curriculum, and typically offering a choice of programming languages, CSinParallel modules have minimal syllabus cost, yet contribute significantly to student understanding of PDC principles and practices. This HPC Educator Session explores three modules that focus on introducing notions in concurrency, multi-threaded programming, and map-reduce “cloud” computing, and will briefly survey other modules in the series. Featured modules are suitable for use in courses ranging from the beginning to advanced levels, and each module’s presentation includes hands-on experience for participants and reports from experience teaching those modules. We welcome participants with any level of exposure to PDC. Publicly available and affordable PDC computational platforms will be provided.
