Have you created a new way of teaching, an outstanding course, or an innovative teaching gem for a particular problem? Are you desperately seeking such curricula and materials? Meet other educators at this roundtable organized by the ACM SIGGRAPH Education Committee, learn about their approaches, and share your personal classroom experience with self-made or third-party curricular and instructional resources.

The committee presents its resource projects and opens the floor for lively discussion. Topics include: the peer-reviewed CGEMS (Computer-Graphics Educational Materials Source) and the community-based cgSource, designed to improve educators' resources' and peer recognition. Also in this session: CGEMS jurors honor the best materials in 2008.
