From Online Professional Development to Classroom Pedagogy: Working at the Nexus of Research

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The goal of PD4CS (Professional Development for Computer Science) is to establish an
evidence-based professional development (PD) program to improve teachers’ knowledge
to teach Computer Science (CS) at the high school level. The PD4CS project team has
been developing and implementing a high-quality professional development approach
that incorporates online just-in-time support, in collaboration with Project Lead The Way
(PLTW). This session will present initial observations gathered from the launch of the
pilot online professional development website. An overview of the project will be given,
as well as a demonstration of selected topics covered online. The aim of this session is to
create a dialogue between CS teachers of various expertise levels and CS researchers by
enhancing the teaching-research nexus as well as the advancement of professional
development in CS.
