Dr. Carol Spradling

Dr. Carol Spradling, associate professor or computer science and information systems, presented at the Association For Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group Computer Science Education (SIGCSE) conference in Atlanta, Ga., March 5-8. 

Spradling was part of a seven-member panel that led a discussion, titled “Interdisciplinary Computing in Many Forms.” 

Spradling spoke about “big team teaching” as it relates to her role as a faculty team leader of Northwest’s Knacktive program. Spradling is one of five faculty members who lead Knacktive, an interdisciplinary experience during which 32 highly select undergraduate students from six disciplines work in an interactive and collaborative environment designed to duplicate that of an integrated digital marketing agency.

As SIGCSE’s flagship conference, more than 1,200 computer science educators attended.
