Colloquium - Main

The Forbidden Lectures
Department of Computer Science

This talk is an experience report. In particular, I'll share some of my experiences in bringing new topics to the classroom -- often topics that seem out of place, possibly too advanced for the level of the course, or maybe even forbidden! (No, not really, but it catches the students' attention if you suggest that the CIA doesn't want these things taught.) I'll compress three specific topics into 50 minutes:

Along the way, I'll provide a few suggestions for appealing to a variety of different learning styles -- for example. These ideas might not work for everyone, because some of them are tailored to my teaching style. But even so, I hope you'll get ideas for your own classroom -- or at least go away with an appreciation for the bizarre world of quantum psuedo-telepathy.
