Purdue University, in cooperation with the Indiana Hoosier Heartland CSTA, hosted thirteen teachers on campus for a three-day computer science teaching workshop from July 25th to July 27th, 2016. During the workshop, the teachers worked together to develop collaborative lesson plans, address the Big Ideas of the new Computer Science Principles course, and build the CSTA Community of Practice.
From July 25th to July 27th, 2016, Purdue University’s Department of Computer Science will be hosting teachers for a three day workshop focused on the seven big ideas of the new AP Computer Science Principles course, and on building a community of practice for Indiana CSTA members. Each day will feature a mix of workshop sessions and open time for collaborative lesson planning and activity development.
