Welcome!

LupLab is a Computer Science Education (CSEd) research group, hosted in the Department of Computer Science, at the University of California, Davis, and headed by Prof. Joël Porquet-Lupine.

Our activities focus primarily on pedagogical and curricular innovation for teaching undergraduate computer science courses.

  • Paper accepted at SIGCSE 2023

    The paper entitled “Group Work in (too) Large CS Classes with (too) Few Resources: an Experience Report” which I co-wrote with Madison Brighman and that explains the strategy I have developed for grading groupwork in ECS 150, was accepted at SIGCSE 2023 (the 54th ACM Technical Symposium on Computer Science Education).

    In addition, I will be part of a panel called “It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time” where I will share my story of (mis-?)using the winky face emoticon ;)

  • LupLab is recruiting for the upcoming school year

    LupLab is currently recruiting UCD students (master’s and undergrads) for the upcoming 2022/2023 school year, on a variety of projects. More information in the call for applications (only accessible with a UCD account).
