Additional Information

About Me

In 2004, I won The University of Texas at DallasComputer Science Excellence in Teaching Award. For me, this was a very gratifying accomplishment, since I have desired to be an excellent educator for almost my entire life. My philosophy of teaching includes communicating to students my enjoyment and passion for the subject areas in computer science and mathematics, as well as communicating that I truly want them to learn and master the material being presented.

For many years I have wanted to make excellent educational content available to students over the Internet so that students can learn at their own pace and time. Starting in 2005 I assisted in the development of a software project called EDU 2.0 that provides educators with a way to make any type of educational content available to anyone via the Internet, and allows students to freely access this content. The software can keep track of a student's progress, lessons completed, test scores, etc.

I have also been using WebCT in order to provide more online educational materials to my students.

Three Recognized for Outstanding Teaching, Advising
Farage was selected from among 150 nominations for non-tenured-track faculty members who were nominated by undergraduate students for the honor. As was the case with the Chancellor’s Council for Outstanding Teaching Award, the committee narrowed the nominations to four finalists and then reviewed letters of recommendation, teaching evaluations and the opinions of the finalists’ deans before selecting Farage as the winner. He is only the second recipient of the award, created in 2007 by President Daniel.
Farage’s award includes a $3,000 stipend from the University.
