Bradley Beth has worked in computer science education since 2000, wearing many hats, including high school teacher, curriculum designer, computer science education researcher, and university faculty.
He currently is both Faculty and Program Coordinator for the Computer Information Systems and Data Science degree programs. His current research interests center on using game-based learning in computer science courses.
While at The University of Texas at Austin, he was the primary developer of the Thriving in Our Digital World dual enrollment course, which included a novel college preparation model that has now been generalized to the UT OnRamps program (https://onramps.utexas.edu).
His dual enrollment course has now been adapted for use as UTeach Computer Science Principles, an NSF-funded, College Board-endorsed curriculum for the Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles course (http://cs.uteach.utexas.edu/).
While a high school teacher, Professor Beth was named, “Teacher with the Largest Number of Latino Students in the Nation Passing the Advanced Placement Computer Science Exam” by College Board in 2007.
