Classes

with apologies and thanks To Robert Balder: visit partiallyclips.com

As a professor, I sometimes find myself acting as an instructor in a formal setting. I tend to teach senior-level undergraduate and graduate courses, mostly, but I have been known to teach lower-division courses as well.

Here is a list of pointers to the classes I teach, or will teach, or have taught (or something) for those of you in my classes or trying to figure out how a class from me might be. In the meantime, I think the comic strip above nicely captures my teaching philosophy.

Spring
CS 8001 ISR Intelligent Systems Reading Group: An ongoing reading group on research papers in IS.
CS 7/4641 Machine Learning: An introductory course to approaches in Machine Learning.
CS 8803 APIE Adaptive Personalized Information Environments: This is a class on one of my major research interests, and happily co-taught with Jeff Pierce. It's a project-driven course, and is now on its final step towards being an official course.

2005

Fall
CS 8001 ISR Intelligent Systems Reading Group: An ongoing reading group on research papers in IS.
CS 7641 Machine Learning: An introductory graduate course to approaches in Machine Learning.
CS 1100 Freshman Seminar: An informal series of seminars for incoming CS freshmen, co-ordinated by Merrick Furst.
Spring
CS 8001 ISR Intelligent Systems Reading Group: An ongoing reading group on research papers in IS.
CS 7/4641 Machine Learning: An introductory course to approaches in Machine Learning. There are ungraduate and graduate sections.
CS 4002 Robots and Society: This is a course about the impact of robots and other intellgent agents on our organizations and our culture. This counts as an alternative to 4001, the required senior-level course on ethics.

2004

Fall
CS 8001 ISR Intelligent Systems Reading Group: An ongoing reading group on research papers in IS.
CS 1801 Freshman Seminar: An informal series of seminars for incoming CS freshmen, co-ordinated by Merrick Furst.
Summer
CS 1371B Computing for Engineers: An introductory programming and computing course, specifically for Engineers (lots of Matlab!).
Spring
CS 8001 ISR Intelligent Systems Reading Group: An ongoing reading group on research papers in IS.
CS 7641 Machine Learning: A graduate introductory course to approaches in Machine Learning.
CS 8803 APIE Adaptive Personalized Information Environments: This is a class on one of my major research interests, and happily co-taught with Jeff Pierce. It's a project-driven course, and continues its march towards being an official course.

2003

Fall
CS 4600 A/B Introduction to Intelligent Systems: The introductory undergraduate course for Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Systems.
CS 1801 Freshman Seminar: An informal series of seminars for incoming CS freshmen, co-ordinated by Merrick Furst.
Spring
CS 8802B Adaptive Personalized Information Environments: This is a class on one of my major research interests, and happily co-taught with Jeff Pierce. It's a project-driven course, and we plan to turn it into a "real" course over the next two years.
CS 4000D Computerization in Society: This is a required senior-level course that "examines computing as a social process with emphasis on ethical issues and the social impact of computerization on local and global organizations." Personally, I think those issues are better described as policy than ethical, but we'll see as the semester goes along.
