Stacks Image 110526

Mission

The CSE Summit is designed primarily for educators who are currently teaching Computer Science (CS), those interested in teaching CS, and administrators interested in supporting CS initiatives in their school districts. The Summit will bring together teachers from across the state to engage in a conversation about CS education, to share information, and to create a community around CS education. Teachers will have the opportunity to share their ideas and questions during the Summit which will inform further work around CS education in VT. The work will be grounded in the CS standards using the Computer Science Teachers Association Frameworks and Standards (2107) as well as the International Society for Technology in Education resources.

Registration for this event is fully funded by the University of Vermont STEM Education Initiative Grant. We have a limited capacity for the CSE Summit so please register ASAP.
