"Peachy Assignments:" A New Edu* Conference Component

Workshop: Workshop on Education for High Performance Computing (EduHPC)
Authors: David Bunde (Knox College)

Abstract: Course assignments are integral to student learning HPC and also play an important role in student perceptions of the field. Instructors love to give exciting assignments that highlight important applications while emphasizing important principles and techniques. Unfortunately, creating great assignments is time-consuming and even our best efforts do not always succeed. This talk will introduce "Peachy Assignments", a new session for the Edu workshops. The idea is to showcase great assignments that are readily adoptable by other instructors. Come and learn about what makes a Peachy Assignment!
