Computer Science Endorsement Opportunity

computer science
In September 2022, the Computer Science Education program at UNI (CSEd@UNI), Central Rivers and Grant Wood Area Education Agencies, and the University of Virginia were awarded a CSForAll: RPP scale-up grant by the National Science Foundation. This award is an expansion of CSEd@UNI's existing Computer Science Endorsement program and will better serve teachers statewide by partnering with the AEAs to provide more local access to high quality computer science instruction. Participants will complete computer science content and pedagogy coursework through UNI, while participating in face-to-face communities of practice (CoPs) facilitated through the AEAs. These CoPs give the participants a peer support network and will aid in the development of a localized, community-based support network — something highly valued in the original grant work. Participants who complete the program will earn the state of Iowa’s 5-12 CS Endorsement (#278). Click here to view the flyer. Complete the interest form to be sent additional information and an application by January 31, 2023.
