Last week, as part of the NSF-funded CSforAll grant, the Center for Effective School Practices hosted a 3-day virtual workshop for members of the research-practice partnership.
During the institute, members attended sessions focusing on a wide variety of topics, all relating to increasing equity and access in computer science education. Diverse guest students and teachers joined the sessions for group panel discussions, and districts were given planning time to increase robustness and inclusivity in their schools’ computer science pathways.
Although the institute could not be in-person, the event was a great chance for RPP members to re-connect and strengthen relationships, a core mission of the project. We’re looking forward to continue our work throughout the school year and to re-connect next summer (hopefully in person)!
