Rutgers University, Computer Science Department Colloquium: From Potential to Promise - Developing Scholars, One Eureka Moment at a Time

Abstract: 

In this talk, I will tell the story of our work with some truly remarkable undergraduate students at Rutgers-Camden, who despite many odds have achieved success that is unprecedented for the Camden campus. Their success has brought around a transformation in the student culture in the CS department at Rutgers-Camden. I will discuss the various challenges that we faced and some ideas that have worked very well (and some that have not) for us. I will also discuss how we have been applying some of these ideas in our work with high school students and students at other institutions.
