Teaching Experience
I Championed, designed and help shepherd the Bachelor of Innovation family of degrees through the CU approval process and am passionate about it. Note: my official teaching load at UCCS is 1 course per term. I teach more, often much more, because it is important and I enjoy it.

In Fall 2013, CS1300, Computational Linear Algebra to 46 Students. This was a new course designed to teach Computational Linear Algebra to freshman students. It can be taken before calculus so students can begin CS topics, including graphics, without delay. It focuses much more on computational issues, including topics such as Graphics Computations, roundoff/stability, SVD, Kalman Filtering.

In Spring 2012 I co-taught, with Colleen Stilles, 29 students in Intro. to Technical and Proposal Writing and Presentation (INOV2100) The third course in the Bachelor of Innovation family of degrees, student advance their writing skills, including writing proposal for real money. They also improve their oral presentation and persuasion skills.

1 I define "selective publications" as papers, at least 6 pages in length, that appear in journals or conferences with < 35% acceptance rate, with at least two written referee reports, and that are distributed to > 200 people or libraries. Or conference papers which, because of their importance, are later chosen to be included in widely distributed books.

2 Other Publications are those with "minimal reviewing" standard, but where full papers are published, including invited papers and workshops which have minimal reviewing standards (including any that accepts > 70% of papers). University technical reports, and workshops/conferences (e.g. SPIE) where only abstracts are published are not included in this CV.
