CSPdWeek is back in 2020!
CSPdWeek will return to Colorado School of Mines July 19-24, 2020 in Golden, Colorado. CSPdWeek is a week-long residential professional development experience for computer science educators to support teachers and schools in offering inclusive and rigorous computer science learning opportunities. Co-located programs include Bootstrap, NCWIT’s C4C (Counselors 4 Computing), and Mobile CSP.
See our Teacher Program page for more information about our PD program.
Our commitment to equity includes ensuring that teachers and students who are underrepresented in CS have access to meaningful learning opportunities. As such, we encourage teachers from underrepresented groups or who serve large populations of students from underrepresented groups to apply, including but not limited to teachers of color; LGBTQ+ teachers; teachers with disabilities; and teachers serving low-income students, students in rural districts, and/or students who are members of the groups above.
In order to be eligible for ECS PD, teachers must commit to teaching ECS as a full course at the high school level in 2020-21. In addition, new teachers must commit to participating in the full ECS PD experience—5 days in summer 2020, 4 quarterly ECS Online PD sessions, and 5 additional days in summer 2021. ECS teachers who are interested in this program as their second summer of PD are welcome to apply as well.
The application deadline is TBD. Notifications of acceptance will be made in spring. In order to confirm your registration, you must submit a signed letter of commitment from your principal within a week of your notification of acceptance.
Participation in ECS summer PD includes a $1,000 stipend, and travel, room, and board are all provided. All costs for those teachers accepted for ECS PD will be covered by funding from the National Science Foundation, and you will not have to do any independent fundraising.
