2022

  • July: I am helping pilot a new workshop at Bucknell - Aspiring PUI Faculty Workshop. This October, we’ll host late-stage PhD students and post docs at Bucknell in order to help expose them to and prepare them for faculty positions at primarily-undergaduate instituions (PUIs). Consider applying here!
  • July: 📣 A new year and a new design for https://cs-pui.github.io/. CS-PUI is a website that I created to help advertise CS faculty positions at primarily-undergraduate institutions (PUIs) - it’s now live for the 2022-2023 hiring cycle! We crossed 10,000 hits last year, and I’m excited to see it continue to grow this year!
  • July: A long overdue redesign of my website is finally complete (this one!): https://evanpeck.github.io/. I wrote plenty of custom javascript code to translate JSON publication-info to a prettier website format - feel free to ping me if you’re interested in how it works.
  • June: I joined the BELIV 2022 program committee. This year’s workshop focuses on Designing and Evaluating Visualizations for an Ethical, Inclusive, and Responsible Future
  • May: I co-authored a book chapter with Iris Howley and Darakhshan Mir for The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence in Education: Practices, Challenges, and Debates by Routledge - Integrating AI Ethics Across the Computing Curriculum. It's now off to the presses!
  • May: Our Bucknell learning community proposal - STEM (In)Justice: Inside and Outside the Curriculum - was approved for 2022-23. I am co-facilitating bi-weekly meetings with Deepak Iyer (Physics + Astronomy), Amal Kabalan (Electrical + Comp Eng), Elif Miskioğlu (Chem Eng), Darakhshan Mir (CS), and Deborah Sills (Civil Eng) to critically examine STEM’s courses, curricula, practices, and pedagogy.
  • May: My internal proposal with Eddy López (Art + Art History) was funded for Fall 2022 - Parallel Courses for Interdisciplinary Engagement. The grant will support engineering/art speakers + collaborations between my Human-Computer Interaction course and Eddy’s Graphic Design course.
  • April: Our workshop on Visualization for Social Good was accepted to IEEE VIS 2022 with a theme of pedagogy, processs, and protest. This year, I’ll be stepping back from the organizing committee to a steering committee.
  • April: I participated in a panel about social and ethical responsibilities in UI - hosted by the UI/UX@MIT student group.
  • April: A successful submission to IEEE VIS + plenty of papers to review.
  • March: Congratulations to my wonderful undergraduate researchers - past and present! Sami Wurm (‘22) decided she will attend Stanford’s Music, Science, and Tech Masters program next year. Reva Sharma’s (‘25) successful Program for Undergraduate Research proposal and Jaehoon Pyon’s (‘23) successful Costa Healthcare Research and Design Fund proposal means they will both work with me for summer research at Bucknell this year!
  • March: My EngageCSEedu paper - 1-Hour Collaborative Learning Activity for Responsible Human-AI Design - was presented at a special session at SIGCSE 2022. See the talk here
