David W . Reed, PhD

Chair, Department of Computer Science, Design & Journalism

Professor

David Reed is a Professor and Chair of the Department of Computer Science, Design & Journalism at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. He received his B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics (double major) from Vanderbilt University and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from Duke University. Prior to joining the Creighton faculty in 2000, he held faculty positions at Bennett College, Duke University and Dickinson College.

Dr. Reed's primary interests are in programming languages and computer science education, where he has published extensively on topics such as apprentice-based learning, Web-based programming, and innovative instructional methods in introductory computer science. He is author of the introductory text, A Balanced Introduction to Computer Science, which is currently in its third edition and has been widely adopted at both colleges and high schools. He has been an active contributor in the AP Computer Science program for more than two decades, serving as Chief Reader from 2004 through 2008. He also served on the ACM/IEEE Computer Science 2013 Steering Committee, which produced the influential Computer Science Curricula 2013 report, as well as on the Board of Directors of the Computer Science Teachers Association from 2009 to 2018 (Board Chair, 2015-2017). He has been a member of the Liberal Arts Computer Science Consortium since 1999.
