Presented by: Colleen Lewis, PhD, Computer Science, Harvey Mudd College

At Harvey Mudd College 40% of CS majors are women and at UC Berkeley the percentage of CS majors who are women has nearly doubled in the last 10 years. Professor Colleen Lewis has participated in designing, implementing, and evaluating diversity initiatives at both institutions. She will share her experiences and discuss how the interventions at each institution were shaped by local factors and educational research.

Colleen Lewis is a professor of computer science at Harvey Mudd College who specializes in computer science education. Lewis researches how people learn computer science and how people feel about learning computer science. Her research seeks to identify effective teaching practices for creating equitable learning spaces where all students have the opportunity to learn. Lewis curates CSTeachingTips.org, a NSF-sponsored project for disseminating effective computer science teaching practices (i.e. CS pedagogical content knowledge).

The CREATE-STEM series is organized by Anna Bargagliotti, Ph.D., Mathematics, and Jeff Phillips, Ph.D., Physics. Please contact them directly or via teachers@lmu.edu for details.

Refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP to teachers@lmu.edu or x85866.
