Getting to More: A Design Studio on CS PD

On April 25-26, 2013, the University of Chicago’s Center for Elementary Mathematics and Science Education (CEMSE) and Urban Education Institute (UEI) hosted a two-day “Design Studio” for computer science (CS) professional development (PD) providers.

The Design Studio offered a structured approach to improving participants’ PD offerings by leveraging their diverse experience and expertise. The two-day event attracted 36 PD providers, from 18 sites across the country, and was developed to meet the interests and needs of PD providers while focusing on how the community can help move K-12 CS education PD: (1) toward more coherence; (2) toward better fitting the needs of the groups that will comprise the CS teacher workforce; and (3) to focus more on teaching and learning in the classroom.
