With continued support from the National Science Foundation we were able to once againt to bring high school and college educators to a workshop focusing on
Attracting more and diverse students into your middle and high school Computer Science classes;
Influencing the perceptions of students, parents, guidance counselors, administrators, and other teachers on the importance of your courses and the opportunities they provide;
Engaging students in the exciting and rewarding field of computing.
The workshop began Tuesday mornomg, July 14 and finished Thursday afternoon, July 16.
During the workshop participants shared strategies, practices, and good ideas for teaching computer science and established a collaboratory named CS Tapestry for future activities and contributions.
Materials from the workshop are being posted in the agenda section and on the collaboratory.
Development and running of the workshop has been sponsored by the National Science Foundation (grant 0739254) and by the UVA School of Engineering and Applied Science and its Department of Computer Science. Their assistance is greatly appreciated.
