Teaching Programming Intro (Workshop)

This workshop will be presented in an online format. This workshop program aims to build basic programming skills which are needed in teaching many different computing courses in high school. The workshop is broken into three, two-hour sessions. Each session has two primary focuses – building programming skills and building skills in developing assignments and assessing student work. The three sessions are – Block-Based Programming, Python Programming I, Python Programming II. The first session builds skills using the most popular in-browser programming environments that are used as first programming environments at many levels. The second two sessions build skills in the most popular first text-based programming language. Click Here for Learning Outcomes.

Prerequisite: No previous programming or computer science experience will be assumed. Attendees will benefit from having a functioning laptop; this is not required.

Workshops are designed to be regional professional development opportunities. Teachers may register for any available workshop that is not within their region; however, STEM Teach does not reimburse for travel expenses.
