Eight Years Analysis of Adopting PDC in Data Structures at UCA
Abstract: University of Central Arkansas (UCA) is located at the center of Arkansas. The student population of UCA is between 10,000 and 12,000. The student body of UCA is around 20% minority and 60% female. UCA was established (in 1907) over a hundred years ago. It is the third largest public school as well as the third fastest enrollment growing public school in Arkansas.
Since 2011 fall semester, the Department of Computer Science at UCA has been selected as one of early adaptors for NSF/TCPP Curriculum Initiative on Parallel and Distributed Computing (PDC). Data Structures has adopted the parallel and distributed concepts for the past eight years. Our goal is to revise our adapted courses, share our successful experiences through this paper and attract more adopters.
