Hi there! I'm Kieran, a geek professor. I teach geek things, like programming, and website stuff.
Me in 2004: Teaching is so depressing. Students don't get the simplest things. What a waste of time. Feeling a little guilty, too. What if I'm part of the problem?
15-year training montage (Rocky music: do, do do do, doo do, do do doooo). Studying learning research. Designing new teaching work flows. Writing software to make the work flows work, and flow. Trying it. Improving. Trying it. Improving...
Me in 2019: Teaching doesn't suck. It's even kinda fun! Students actually learn how to do stuff. They see their time and money are well-spent. The teaching work flow is a well-oiled machine, that just runs. Ah! Life is good.
