A whole year of notes from the, um, “Updates” page on my website, where I haphazardly write as I feel inspired to do so. This update includes notes about language learning, research updates, and think-alouds as I figure out academia.
This post outlines my lightning talk and poster for the 2023 International Computing Education Research conference. It’s a nice update regarding where my research is headed and what I’m working on lately.
In my research into broadening pathways to computing careers, I’ve been exploring how “cultural gatekeeping in computing” perpetuates stereotypes about computing, making non-traditional pathways harder to follow.
Sharing a small anecdote that helped me, it might help you, too.
Gosh, what a week!
I drew this monster last Thursday. I tried to think of a body shape I haven’t drawn before, and I think the legs are unique.
I drew this monster last night on the iPad while listening to music. Don’t the eyes look .
