Abstract

Call it a surge, call it a bubble, just don't call it business as usual. It is no secret that enrollments in college and university computer science (CS) classes are growing rapidly and faculty are under pressure to teach more classes and significantly larger classes. They need new and creative ways to accommodate as many students as possible while maintaining excellent pedagogy. Not only that, we don't want to repeat history and worsen already poor diversity statistics with enrollment management strategies that shut out or discourage women and other under-represented groups.
