So You Have to Teach Computer Science?

Mar 6, 2024

1:00pm – 2:00pm CT

In an era where computer science education is becoming increasingly essential, the demand for qualified CS teachers is on the rise. However, the shortage of these educators is a stark reality. Join us for a session that addresses the pressing questions of how to kickstart CS instruction and, more importantly, how to empower teachers to feel confident in delivering this critical curriculum.
This meet-up serves as a platform to address these issues and provide a solution-oriented approach:
1. Finding and Supporting CS Teachers
2. Recruitment and Retention
3. Building a Supportive Network
