Programming as a Way of Thinking: An Interview with Allen Downey

In this episode, host Dave Goldberg is joined by Allen Downey, professor of Computer Science at Olin College. Through his work at Olin, Allen has been presented with unique opportunities to develop new curricular materials and influence engineering education: such as introducing modeling and simulation early in the curriculum and applying it throughout, and taking computational approaches to topics that are traditionally presented mathematically. Join Allen and Dave as they explore how modern programming language provides new tools for teaching, learning, exploring, and thinking, and delve into the importance of peer learning and visualization.
