2011 UC Davis Summer Institute on Computing and STEM Education
The C-STEM Center will host the 2011 UC Davis Summer Institute on Computing and STEM Education on June 20-July 1 for K-12 STEM and CS teachers. The two-week long Summer Institute will offer two one-week courses. The first week is on “Teaching Math Labs for Algebra Using Interactive Computing and Programming” and the second week is on “Teaching Introductory Computer Programming and Computer Science”. This intensive summer institute is designed to train teachers on the principles of computing and its teaching pedagogy, how to teach math labs for Algebra using interactive computing and programming, how to teach computer programming and computer science, and how to integrate computing and engineering activities into K-12 STEM curriculum.
Teachers can take one or both courses to get started on integrating computing into their curriculum. For teachers who have not done programming before, we recommend that they attend the entire two-week institute.
Deadline for early registration: June 10, 2011. More information is available about the Summer Institute in pdf form here.
