Teaching Professor in the EECS department at UC Berkeley
Berkeley (California, USA)


Dan Garcia is a Teaching Professor in the EECS department at UC Berkeley. Selected as an ACM Distinguished Educator and Speaker, and ACM SIGCSE Vice-Chair, he is a national leader in the “CSforALL” movement, bringing engaging computer science to students normally underrepresented in the field.

The “Beauty and Joy of Computing” (BJC) non-majors course he co-developed has been shared with over 800 high school teachers all around the world. His course regularly has more than 50% female enrollment, and its high of 65% shattered the campus record for an intro computing course, and is among the highest in the nation.


A passionate group of teachers, designers and creators of educational tools from around the world will meet at Faberllull Olot to promote these creative learnings in educational programming and robotics. Many of them already share projects during the year, from distant locations, enjoying the technologies that allow to work remotely and asynchronously, but the personal and intensive meeting that Faberllull Olot offers them is an invaluable gift.
