About the Course

This course is part of the Pathfinders Summer Institute 2024. It is designed to be 40 hours of synchronous and asynchronous learning. Eligible K-12 public school teachers will receive a full scholarship to participate!

Our professional development course, Disability Inclusion in K-12 CS Education, engages teachers in instructional strategies and practices designed to remove barriers for learning computer science for all learners, including those with disabilities. This professional development was designed through funds from the National Science Foundation and Google to research and disseminate best practices for all learners in K-12 CS education. Through an examination and implementation of strategies, including Universal Design for Learning, computer science educators can build inclusive classrooms that embrace all learners.

In this professional development, educators will learn and practice the various pedagogies and practices to equip themselves to help bring CS education to all students. Bringing and building an accessible learning environment will have lasting impacts on all of the participants, even the teachers!

There are no prerequisites. This virtual experience is available to all public school educators regardless of grade level, content area, or experience.
