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. This class is best suited for High School teachers however if you feel that you could benefit from this training we are happy to have you register for the class and join us. Oracle Academy also offers workshops that are excellent resources for Middle and Elementary School. Keep Calm and Java On is offered in two parts, Java Fundamentals and Java Programming.
