Problem Description

  • our top students fail interview tests due to
    • lack of theoretical knowledge
  • our students don't market themselves
    • some are bright, hard-working but hide from the public spotlight
  • C++ projects no longer accepted - too difficult for our students
  • yet some GP students have shown the ability to excel well beyond reasonable expectations


  • the long march
  • focus on concepts throughout our courses
    • Jordan identified the teaching of concepts as critical
    • Cathy suggested stressing concepts in lower semester courses
    • identify concepts for what they are when we expose students to them
      unit testing
  • implementation
    • Jordan is known for doing this in his courses
    • Chris continues to add conceptual material in his notes
