Professional Development for Computing Science Educators

Computational Thinking Summer Conference (2019)

The Computational Thinking Summer Conference (2019) is a professional development opportunity for stakeholders in Computer Science education in the Edmonton area. We will be discussing how to integrate various platforms into lessons, as well as providing opportunities to network with other stakeholders in Computer Science education in the Edmonton area. Sessions are designed primarily with Divisions II through IV in mind. While some sessions are targeted to a specific audience, teachers are welcome to attend as many sessions as they feel are valuable. All are taught by active teachers, professors or industry professionals.

Thanks to Google’s Educator PD Grants Program (formerly known as CS4HS), we are offering a major CS PD Conference in the summer of 2019. Thank you to the University of Alberta's Department of Computer Science for applying for and organizing the grant.
