Start from where they are: Rochester Institute of Tech Opens Center Focused on ‘Computing Science for All’ 

Paul’s last line below says it all.  If you want to teach CS to all majors, you start by looking at the computing needs in those disciplines. You don’t start by asking computing experts what they do. Bravo!

“The Golisano College embraces a vision in which the computing domain is accessible to everyone, regardless of discipline, disability or diverse background,” said Anne Haake, dean of the college, who is spearheading the launch of the center from within her college. CS professor Paul Tymann will serve as director.

“Computers have become part of the fabric of virtually every discipline, and I don’t think you can be successful in today’s society without having a basic understanding of how computing works,” said Tymann, in a press release. “That’s why we are looking to understand the computing needs of every discipline at RIT.”
