Teaching Breadth-First: Finding a Common Ground When Teaching Diverse Students
Department of Computer Science

Breadth-First approaches to teaching provide first a holistic view of the topics to be covered before discussing them in more detail later. This approach lends itself well to finding a common ground when teaching students from different disciplines. Two themes of computer graphics, namely computer-generated color and computer-generated visualization, are introduced in the teaching/learning tool SIMBA using a breadth-first approach. Besides discussing the teaching/learning tool SIMBA and the teaching situation for an interdisciplinary course "Creativity and Technology", I can also report on evaluations of the "Breadth-First" aspects of the course.
