Professional Development & Workshops
Our training is right for you!
Our professional development is approachable for computer science teachers of all levels of experience. It is accessible and well-structured to support new or inexperienced CS teachers while including innovative and creative lessons and activities that more experienced teachers can bring to their classroom.
We know that professional development is critical to the usefulness of any resource, no matter how well designed resources may be. We strive to provide effective and enjoyable PD that will make you excited to offer our materials.
Our workshops and resources have been built upon years of experience teaching computer science as part of regular provincial curricula, AP, IB and working with teachers from elementary to post-secondary.
Thank you to everyone who attended our 4-day Summer Workshop or our session at the University of Waterloo Summer Conference for CS Teachers.
