I always enjoy sharing my knowledge with my peers! I’ve been working as Teaching Assistant at University of Minnesota for two years: a whole year as the teaching assistant for CSci 2011: Discrete Structures of Computer Science and now as a teaching staff for the Coursera course “From GPS and Google Maps to Spatial Computing”.
Coursera: From GPS and Google Maps to Spatial Computing
This course is a free online course that introduces the fundamental ideas underlying spatial computing services, systems and sciences co-taught by Brent Hecht and Shashi Shekhar. Topics covered include spatial database, spatial data mining, VGI analysis, positioning, web cartography and relevant algorithms. As of October 2014, this class has reached over 20,000 enrolled students. I served as a teaching staff for this course. My responsibilities included monitoring the discussion forum, providing academic support for students, designing programming assignments and quizzes and recording assignment instruction videos.

Topics covered in CSci2011 included intro-level set theory, number theory, combinatorics, probability, proof and graph theory. My responsibilities were leading two weekly 50-student recitation sessions, holding weekly office hour sessions and grading assignments/quizzes. [Course Homepage]
