TITLE: A Knowing-and-Doing Gathering at SIGCSE?
AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford
DATE: March 08, 2010 8:41 PM
I'm off tomorrow to SIGCSE. I'm looking forward to several
events, among them the
media computation workshop,
New Educators Roundtable,
several sessions on programming languages and compilers,
and especially a keynote address by physics Nobel laureate
Carl Wiemann, who lots to say about
using science to teach science.
It should be a busy and fun week.
A couple of readers have indicated interest in visiting
with me over a coffee break at the conference. Reader
suggested something more: an informal meeting of Knowing
and Doing readers. The lack of comments on this blog
notwithstanding, I love hearing from readers, whether
they have ideas to share or concerns with my frequently
sketchy logic. As a reader myself, I often like to
put a face on the authors I read. A few readers of
this blog feel the same. My guess is that readers of
my blog probably have a lot in common, and they might
gain as much from meeting each other as meeting me!
So. If you are interested in meeting up with me at
SIGCSE, partaking in an informal gathering of Knowing
and Doing readers, or both, drop me a line
or on Twitter
I'll gauge interest and let everyone know the verdict.
I'm sure that, if there's interest, we can find a time
and space to connect.
