  • Ph.D., Duke University, 1965


Dr. Winslow began his career at the University of Dayton in the Department of Computer Science in 1981. He directed the department's graduate program from 1981-97 and led the redesign of the graduate curriculum including introducing new courses. He taught courses at all levels and his notes for the introductory course have been used by thousands of students at a number of universities including the University of Notre Dame and schools in Canada and Australia.

Faculty perspective

"Early in my career I realized that computer science, as a new discipline, lacked adequate pedagogy. This led to a life-long study of how people learn and how a teacher can smooth a student's path. The results have been most rewarding. In a field advancing as fast as computer science, constant study and research are necessary to stay current. This work led to a number of publications in the areas of pedagogy, electrical engineering, numerical mathematics, databases, and parallel programming; it has also allowed me to approach students as a fellow student in a quest for knowledge."
