Update: Applications for the 2017-18 CS Principles Professional Learning Program are open until April 14, 2017. The application period for CS Discoveries is now closed.
Will you, or a teacher you know, teach computer science next year?
Code.org is now offering admission into its Professional Learning Program on computer science (CS). The intensive, year-long training prepares educators to teach CS Discoveries (for middle school) or CS Principles (for high school).
Designed for computer science veterans or beginners, this training will help you:
- grow your teaching practice
- become an expert in computer science materials and supports
- bring high-quality approaches to computer instruction to help your students
Last April, Battelle Education earned status as a regional partner with Code.org. As a partner, 60 spots – 40 for CS Principles and 20 for CS Discoveries – will be offered to Ohio teachers through Battelle and the Ohio STEM Learning Network.
