Jonathan Beaumont

EECS 470

Jonathan Beaumont administered an online forum for student questions; his average response time was nine minutes. He was a thoughtful teacher, reworking his discussion on memory disambiguation by inventing an assignment that revealed fundamental misunderstandings rather than relying on students to self-identify as needing help. He also worked with his professor and one other GSI to transition the class into using a new programming language, increasing accessibility and reducing student “busy work”. In the process, he added new discussion material and rewrote many of the course’s labs and projects.
