Doodling in Class Leads to National Conference Presentation

Written by David Owens

Loden Cullar-Ledford presenting his paper

While taking a quiz in a class led by Professor William Tastle, Loden Cullar-Ledford ’16 drew an illustration to help him work out a complicated Excel function. Just before handing in the quiz, Cullar-Ledford showed the drawing to his professor, who became intrigued by the idea of breaking down complex functions into drawings. 

Over the course of the semester, Cullar-Ledford worked with Tastle to develop the idea. The pair wrote an academic paper describing how the method could be used, and it was accepted for presentation at the 2014 Information Systems Education Conference (ISECON) held last November. Cullar-Ledford traveled to Baltimore, Maryland, to present the paper at ISECON, the largest continuously running conference for information systems educators.
