When I the teach, I aim to engage learners in a conversation about the material. I take care to practice the strategies for creating an inclusive computer science learning environment I learned in the Carpentries instructor Training.
Software Carpentry Workshop at UCSF
I taught the python sections of the two day Software Carpentry workshop hosted by the UCSF Library March 10-11, 2018.
I used the SWC Python Gapminder curriculum with minor modifications to emphasize extra features of jupyter notebooks. I used github to manage the student downloads (by .zip files) and the final post workshop content and documented the process I used to for setup with this jupyter notebook.
Bayesian Nonparametric Guest Lectures
I guest lectured in my PhD adviser Jennifer Dy’s graduate machine learning course. I taught two lectures, the first introducing bayesian nonparamerics with the Dirichlet Process/ Chinese Restaurant Process and the second extending to the Indian Buffet Process.
