This week, we're joined by Peter Kazarinoff, Professor of Engineering and Engineering Technology at Portland Community College to discuss how adult learners can learn Python, the use of Jupyter notebooks as teaching tools, and some of the common goals of learners of diverse ages, backgrounds, and education levels.
Joined by your usual co-hosts, Kelly and Sean, we explore some of the different approaches needed for adult learners, the common traits needed for successful students of all ages, the materials that we've found most useful for teaching and learning, and some best practices for sequencing course material.Support Teaching Python
