This is a proposal for a workshop titled "What's New with MATLAB". Objectives: MATLAB has changed significantly over the last three years to address the growing needs of its users, but even experienced MATLAB users often do not take advantage of its latest relevant and useful features. This seminar will cover the newest MATLAB features, with a focus on how to utilize these features to simplify work, save time, and increase productivity. As an overall theme, this seminar will be grounded in encouraging computational thinking among students and the pedagogical practices that support it. Targeted audience: New and existing MATLAB users, Educators teaching STEM courses Learning outcomes: Attendees will understand and be able to utilize the following recent feature updates in MATLAB: * MATLAB Foundation Updates - Faster execution engine, Graphics system, Live Editor * Data handling and language enhancements - Simpler data importing, Improved datatypes, Big data capabilities * App building - App Designer, Sharing apps, and Creating toolboxes * Hardware support * Other Toolbox enhancements Activities planned: This will follow an interactive seminar approach. Content for follow-up activities, including all functionality shown during the seminar, will be shared with the attendees. Duration (approximate): 2 hours; 1 hr 45 mins for the seminar, followed by 15 mins for Q&A.
