Applications closed – class is full! Please click here for the Summer 2017 cohort. 

The WeTeach_CS Program housed in the Center for STEM Education at UT Austin, in partnership with Oracle Academy, is offering a series of courses for Texas teachers interested in teaching computer science. This series of professional development experiences will prepare participants to teach courses such as Computer Science I, Computer Science II, or AP Computer Science. Since the AP Computer Science course is based on the Java programming language, this will be the focus of the technical training component. The KCJO coursework February 27 – April 28, 2017 will focus on Java Fundamentals. There will be an optional one day face-to-face follow up training in Dallas (exact location TBA) on Saturday, May 6, 2017. Completers of Java Fundamentals will be eligible to participate in the online Java Programming Course from May 22 – June 1, 2017.

The WeTeach_CS Program housed in the Center for STEM Education at UT Austin, in partnership with Oracle Academy, is offering a series of courses for Texas teachers interested in teaching computer science. This series of professional development experiences will prepare participants to teach courses such as Computer Science I, Computer Science II, or AP Computer Science. Since the AP Computer Science course is based on the Java programming language, this will be the focus of the technical training component. The KCJO coursework February 27 – April 28, 2017 will focus on Java Fundamentals. There will be an optional one day face-to-face follow up training in Dallas (exact location TBA) on Saturday, May 6, 2017.

24apr - 28apr 248:00 amapr 28CS Summer Institute Facilitator AcademyTraining of TrainersThe University of Texas at Dallas

Event Details

The training will span 5 days with a computational thinking introduction and block-based programming that scaffolds to a more complex text-based programming language (Python). It will culminate with a final projects done by participants.

Program Overview

The WeTeach_CS facilitators academy at UT Dallas will give you the tools to run a one to two week summer institute with your WeTeach_CS collaborative. The theme of the Facilitators Academy is “Computational Thinking” and contains explorations of computational thinking across the curriculum throughout the week. Our program is designed in Scratch and Python, but the computer science and computational thinking activities and concepts can be easily translated to other languages if you would like to use something else with your Collaborative.

At the facilitators academy, you will participate in all the activities of the summer institute, with added consideration on how to replicate the program for your teachers. You will receive a facilitator’s guide in addition to digital participant packs. The facilitator’s guide leads you through how to prepare for and execute each activity, along with an overview of the subject matter. The participant packs contain extension lesson plans for each activity suitable for a K-12 classroom, concept information, and completed python programs as well as accompanying skeleton templates.

We will demonstrate a variety of technologies that the institute can incorporate, depending on what you have available. All the provided activities can either be done offline on traditional computers running Windows, macOS, or Linux; or online on Chromebooks using the free online services trinket.io or repl.it. You’ll be given instructions on how to get everyone up and running in a BYOD situation. In addition, we have incorporated a variety of “unplugged” activities to learn computational thinking and computer science without the use of computers at all!

The Exploring Computer Science professional development program is based on three major pillars: computer science content/concepts, inquiry, and equity. These pillars are woven throughout all of the support provided to our teacher community. Computer science instruction is modeled through role playing, jig sawing activities, pair and small-group collaboration, structured tinkering, multiple solutions, utilizing manipulatives, and simulations. We firmly believe that ECS teachers and students are part of a community where all learners have a voice and can make valuable contributions to the learning of the whole group.

Project GUTS — Growing Up Thinking Scientifically — is a science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) program for middle school students serving schools and districts nationally. Growing up thinking scientifically means learning to look at the world and ask questions, develop answers to the questions through scientific inquiry, and design solutions to their problems.

The WeTeach_CS Certification Prep course provides an overview of the educator competencies required of all teachers to become certified in Grades 8-12 Computer Science. This certification is necessary to teach courses such as Computer Science I, II or III, Fundamentals of Computer Science, or AP Computer Science A. Course instructors will address several competencies in depth and link attendees to additional resources that will help to prepare them to challenge the CS certification test.

Each course will run all day (8:00am – 4:00pm) on Thursday and a half-day (8:00am – noon) on Friday.

Stay tuned for more details!
