COMP_SCI 397: Computer Science Education

Quarter Offered

Winter : 3:30-4:50 TuTh ; Horn

Prerequisites

COMP_SCI 211

Description

In this course we will examine the role of computational tools in the design of transformative teaching and learning environments. Grounded in perspectives from the Learning Sciences and Computer Science Education, we will cover topics of equity and inclusion, pedagogy, creative applications of computing, and the integration of computational ideas across multiple disciplines. We have cross-listed the course in Computer Science, Learning Sciences, and Teacher Education in order to foster cross-disciplinary dialogues that consider the affordances of computational ideas for designing learning environments that are asset-based and supportive of multiple routes to understanding various subject-matter. The course will include an optional practicum experience working in a K-12 classroom, informal learning space, or college-level classroom.
