Dan Calderwood, Professor of Computer Information Systems, Eureka Campus

What do you love most about teaching at CR?
I love working with students, watching students engage in managing a complex network, and also sharing the ?aha? moments with them when they conquer a concept.

What do you love most about your discipline?
I love building and troubleshooting networks. The networking concepts taught in CR?s CIS-Networking program mimic the infrastructure that moves data on the Internet. Having a working knowledge of how email, Facebook, web pages, video streaming, audio streaming, twitter data move on the Internet is very exciting.
