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.

  • Noah Rose Ledesma gets best TA award from CS students

    Congratulations to Noah for receiving the best TA awards from the undergraduate CS students. Noah just TA’ed two of my classes this past year (ECS 150 in WQ22 and ECS 36C in SQ22) and did a terrific job so the award doesn’t really come as a surprise!

  • LupIO support in upstream gem5

    Two undergraduate students (Laura Hinman and Melissa Jost) successfully ported the LupIO collection of education-friendly devices to the research simulator gem5 last summer and their work has now been upstreamed. More details in this blog post.
