The workshop will feature Neumont President Aaron Reed, Ed.D., and Vice President of Academic Operations Tim Clark discussing topics ranging from assessing student work and contributions effectively to strategies for empowering students to work better in teams through and active, project-based curriculum.

“We’re passionate about computer science education; and, we’re passionate about student success,” Reed said. “For more than a decade, we’ve been preparing our students to be career-ready at graduation, and one of the building blocks of that success is project-based learning. We’re excited to share the lessons we’ve learned through offering this kind of curriculum with fellow educators.”

Reed says the workshop is part of Neumont’s mission to provide more educational opportunities and community outreach. “Working with and providing support to Utah’s high school educators is one area we’ve identified where we can make a difference,” Reed said. “We’ve heard from many teachers that they’re looking for additional training and education– especially in STEM.”

He has held a range of positions in the IT chain of command from technical support to software architect up to CIO for an eight-campus university located in Southeast Asia. Clark is also a Neumont alumnus, graduating as valedictorian from the institution's first cohort in 2006. He has been a Neumont instructor as well as a program chair.
