Assistant Professor, Education Studies
Dr. Joanna Goode is an Assistant Professor of Education Studies at the University of Oregon. She works with teachers to design curriculum and enhance pedagogy to attract more diverse students to computer science classrooms. For the past decade, Dr. Goode has studied, written and presented extensively about how teachers can create opportunities for more underrepresented students, particularly girls and students of color, to explore computing topics in school. She has received several grants from the National Science Foundation to support this work. Before entering academia, Dr. Goode was a high school computer science and mathematics teacher in a large, urban school. Currently, she serves on the Association of Computing Machinery’s Educational Policy Committee, is the equity chair for the Computer Science Teachers Association Board of Directors, and is a member of the K-12 Alliance of the National Center for Women in Technology. Dr. Goode has authored several journal articles, book chapters, and reports, and is a co-author of the award-winning book, Stuck in the Shallow End: Education, Race, and Computing.
