Students’ Reflection on Computer Science, the Liberal Arts, and the Greater Good

The presentation will describe an assignment used in a computer science capstone course to help students explore how they can use computing skills for the greater good and reflect upon how the core curriculum has prepared them for the profession. In addition to providing the assignment, an analysis of what students chose for their activities and the emergent themes related to the core curriculum will be provided. Students also completed an optional survey about how this activity prepared them.
