Announcing the inaugural Illinois Computer Science Summer Teaching Workshop: Guest blog post from Geoffrey Challen

We are excited to invite you to the inaugural Illinois Computer Science Summer Teaching Workshop: The 2021 workshop will be held virtually over two half-days on August 10–11, 2021. The workshop is free to attend, and teaching faculty, research faculty, as well as graduate and undergraduate students are all invited to participate—either by presenting, or by joining the conversation. The deadline to submit an abstract is Tuesday July 20th.

Our goal is to bring together college instructors who are engaged with teaching computer science to discuss best practices, present new ideas, challenge the status quo, propose new directions, debunk existing assumptions, advocate for new approaches, and present surprising or preliminary results. This year’s theme is “How the Pandemic Transformed Our Teaching“, allowing participants to reflect on the difficult year behind us as we prepare to return to classrooms next fall. We are excited to welcome Professors Margo Seltzer (UBC), Tiffani Williams (Illinois), Susan Rodger (Duke), Nate Derbinsky (Northeastern), and David Malan (Harvard) as invited speakers.

    I would love to attend, but we’ll be back in school on the 9th. Maybe you can do it a little bit earlier next year, if it becomes annual.

      Summer is quite short now, with some schools ending June 12 and others starting August 9.
