Computer Science Education Summer Institute 2007

The goals of the Institute are to promote reflection and discussion about the role of computing in education, as well as the definitions of computer science as realized in K-12 programs. Participants will engage in a series of presentations and sessions to review current and future trends in the preparation of students to effectively utilize computing and information technology.

This year marks the inaugural Institute at Haverford, and is based on a successful model originally developed at Bryn Mawr College about science education. All of this work is funded by HHMI.
