Mark Guzdial is a Professor in the EECS Department at the University of Michigan. He invented Media Computation which uses media as a context for learning computing. With his wife and colleague, Barbara Ericson, he received the 2010 ACM Karl V. Karlstrom Outstanding Educator award. He is an ACM Distinguished Educator and a Fellow of the ACM.
Professor Guzdial studies how people come to understand computing and how to make that more effective. He leads the CSLearning4U project to create ebooks to help high school teachers learn CS. He is one of the leads on the NSF alliance “Expanding Computing Education Pathways” which helps US states improve and broaden their computing education.
