Summary

#CSRefresh

The impact of computer science can be seen everywhere. Computer scientists have made online banking, social media, even self-driving cars possible–and it’s the backbone for many of today’s hottest jobs. But CS is also a rapidly changing field, and these engineers have to keep their skills fresh. What can educators do to make sure they’re teaching the latest techniques and tools? Hear leading CS educators at UC San Diego, University of Michigan, and Coursera discuss the challenges and opportunities of teaching in this rapidly evolving field, lessons they’ve learned through online instruction, and the latest tools and ideas you can use to ‘hit refresh’ on your own instruction.
