Teaching parallel computing with higher-level languages and activity-based laboratories

This project sought to promote effective techniques for teaching parallel programing based on (i) higher-level parallel programming languages so students can focus on concepts and (ii) compelling examples with appeal beyond the scientific computing community that has traditionally practiced parallel computing. This project was a collaboration between PIs David Bunde at Knox College and Jens Mache at Lewis & Clark College.
