TESSAL - Teaching Enhancement via Small-Scale Affordable Labs, Georgia TechSpring '15, Summer '15, Fall '15

TESSAL is an initiative to develop in class lab experiments using low cost embedded processor technology for fundamental ECE courses. I TA'ed under the director of this program, Bonnie Ferri and organized, conducted and revised lab experiments for the following courses: Fundamentals of Digital Design (ECE 2020), Circuit Analysis (ECE 2040) and Signals and Systems (ECE 3084).

This course is the culmination of a student's undergraduate degree and entails applying their knowledge and skills to build a practical project. I TA'ed for this course under Scott Carney and Jonathan Makela and mentored 8-9 projects (group of 2-3 students) every semester. I was included in the List of Teachers Ranked as Excellent by their students in Fall '13 and Spring '14 (outstanding ratings). Guiding students to success and a complete working project was a lot of fun and I got to see some really innovative projects and ideas. Here are a few exceptional ones that I mentored.
