Abstract
We propose to give a half-hour presentation on incorporating PDC topics into our existing undergraduate computer science curriculum. We first describe our experience with single-course and cross-curricular undergraduate PDC education since 1997. We then provide details about our proposed model for incorporating PDC topics into our undergraduate curriculum. To this end, we have distilled a set of consistent, regularly offered and required three-week core and advanced PDC modules from our previously offered PDC content.
