This talk will discuss our experiences running RESCS at Rutgers in our CS1 course, since Fall 2005 as part of this consortium. We will present how we organized the effort, how the experimental pedagogy was setup at our institution, (some) quantitative and (more) qualitative results, and our conclusions.
Our website is http://rescs.rutgers.edu. My collaborators in this project at Rutgers are Pradip Hari, co-ordinator of our CS1 course, and the peer leaders who have worked with me over the past 4 years, Aneta Biesiadecka, Sara Hahn, Helen Nayfeld, Emily Rodriguez, Tom Schirripa, Mai Elsamahy, Alex Luchansky, Mariya Nagorna, Khrystyne Williams.
