Teaching, Tutorials, and Projects

When you think about how you really learned those things that you are good at then chances are that this did not come from a lecture or a video. For many people, learning and understanding comes from working on a problem (often “hitting your head against a wall until the wall yields”) or explaining it to others.

The best way to learn something is to do it – therefore we are sharing some of our notes and insights on how to do what we do. This section of the website also serves for public notes for classes, lectures and tutorials taught at ASU (in addition to any content on Blackboard). Finally, we will also showcase some work that came out of classes.
