I have very strong passion in teaching. I give courses for both undergraduates and graduates. From Fall 2011 to Spring 2020, there have been over 2,300 PKU students taking my class room teaching in total. I was awarded by the "Most Respected and Esteemed Teacher in Peking University", which is **VOTED** purely by the students out of all faculties in Peking University. What a moving honor!
For undergraduates, I focus on how to build their computational thinking, consolidate the programming skills through practice, and increase their interests towards computer science.
For graduates, I provide strong emphasis on training their critical thinking and capabilities in conducting high-quality research, through organizing literature study and discussion, conducting extensive measurement of existing open-source systems, and making some possible optimizations. I particularly focus on the classroom teaching art to increase the interactions with students and establish free and easy discussion atmosphere.
My coures are listed as follows:
How/How Not to Write a Good System Paper (by Dr. Roy Levin and Dr. David D. Redell)
Preliminary Guidelines for Empirical Research in Software Engineering (by Prof. Barbara Kitchenham et al.)
You and Your Research (by Prof. Richard Hamming)
