Jim Rowan

Author: Jim Rowan

I am an assistant professor in the School of Science and Technology at the Georgia Gwinnett College in Lawrenceville, Georgia. My work here centers around teaching. To make this interesting and challenging I tend to push students out of their comfort zones by incorporating more unconventional input devices like touch-sensitive screens and by having them design applications for unfamiliar user populations like pre-literate children or for the Elder population.
