The Academic Excellence Workshop (AEW) offers an opportunity for students to gain additional experience with CS1112 course concepts in a cooperative learning environment. Research has shown that cooperative and collaborative methods promote higher grades, greater persistence, and deeper comprehension. The material presented in the workshop is at or above the level of the regular course. We do not require joining the CS1112 AEW program, but do encourage students to join if they are seeking an exciting and fun way to learn. The AEW carries one S/U credit based on participation and attendance. The time commitment is two hours per week in the lab--no homework will be given. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to seek extra help on course topics in a small-group setting.
Your fellow undergraduate students, who are familiar with the CS11112 material, teach the sessions with material that they prepare. Prof. Fan provides guidance and support but does not actually teach the AEW course content or any session.
Each workshop can accommodate up to 16 students.
There is one S/U credit for the CS AEW, based strictly on attendance. You will be allowed three non-excused absences.
The AEWs start on Sept 7th (there are no classes on Labor Day, Sept 6th). The following sessions are offered:
