Biography/ Background

Cruz hold a B Sc Hons (Computer Science) and a PhD (Computer Architecture) from the University of the Basque Country, and a Graduate Certificate on Online learning for UoA.

Cruz  has a large experience teaching at UoA, from small groups of 15 students to large classes of 300. She believes students learn most by doing, so her classes mix lectures with examples, exercises and quizzes. Her role as a teacher is mainly to observe students efforts, provide support and feedback so they reach their goals and give guidance when required. 

Since 2011, Cruz has lead the outreach program CS4HS which helps middle and high school teachers introduce Computer Science and computational thinking into their school curriculum.

Teaching Interests

In 2014 Cruz  will be teaching and  coordinating  Specialised Programming, MCI project (semester 1), and Introduction to Programming for Engineers (Semester 2).

Cruz has regularly taught and develop teaching materials for Computer Systems, Operating Systems and Computer Architecture.  She has one teaching publication at the IEEE Educon conference 2010.
