Disappointing: NSF CE21 is Gone

April 15, 2013 at 1:23 am 4 comments

From Farnham Jahanian’s email to the CISE-Announce list on the new NSF budget request from the President:

CISE continues its focus on STEM-C Partnerships (formerly, the Computing Education for the 21st Century (CE21) program) in order to increase the pool of students and teachers who develop and practice computational and data competencies in a variety of contexts and to prepare more students to pursue degrees in computing, computation, and data-intensive fields of study.

It might be that STEM-C will fund everything that CE21 funded (can’t find an announcement yet to see), but the departure of a program explicitly named “Computing Education” is a loss for those of us who are trying to grow the field of Computing Education Research.  If it’s not named, it’s easier to ignore.
