Embedding Topical Elements of Parallel Programming, Computer Graphics, and Artificial Intelligence across the Undergraduate CS Required Courses

James Wolfer
2015 International Journal of Engineering Pedagogy (iJEP)  
Traditionally, topics such as parallel computing, computer graphics, and artificial intelligence have been taught as stand-alone courses in the computing curriculum.  ...  This paper reviews that work and expands it with representative examples of assignments, demonstrations, and results as well as describing how the tools and examples deployed for these classes have a residual  ...  Finally, low-level support for Computer Graphics is introduced in the context of device drivers for interactive devices.  ...

Learning the LingoA Cell Biologist's Guide to Modeling and Bioinformatics, by HolmesRaquell M.; 2007; 203 pp.; John Wiley and Sons (Hoboken, NJ); ISBN-10:0471164208

Laurie J. Heyer
2008 CBE - Life Sciences Education  
discusses computational cell biology models in abstract terms to provide a foundation for subsequent chapters, but the foundation it provides is insufficient.  ...  Holmes, however, did not cover other bioinformatics topics such as: • algorithms and tools for predicting RNA and protein structure • finding genes, binding sites, and other motifs in newly sequenced organisms  ...  The greatest benefit of this book is for the researcher in cell biology who hopes to begin a collaboration with a mathematician or computer scientist, and needs a working vocabulary of modeling and computational  ...

He Knows the Words But Not the Music

Howard Wainer
1986 Contemporary Psychology  
In the modern age of widely available computers and statistical packages, teaching a student how to do a particular kind of analysis seems less important than teaching what to do and why.  ...  For example, Senach also addresses graphical dialogues, but here the author has done a case study of expert operators in the control room of the Paris Metro to determine how faulty mental models of the  ...

Engaging with plastination and the Body Worlds phenomenon: A cultural and intellectual challenge for anatomists

D. Gareth Jones, Maja I. Whitaker
2009 Clinical anatomy (New York, N.Y. Print)  
Von Hagens himself is a polarizing figure, pursuing his dream of "democratizing anatomy" with little regard for the conventions of academia.  ...  We conclude that anatomists need to face up to the opportunities and challenges posed by the Body Worlds phenomenon, utilizing what is being presented to the general public and adapting this in teaching  ...  Additionally, body part slices can be correlated with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans for reference and radiological teaching.  ...
