In the Chronicle of Higher Education, http://chronicle.com/article/Rebooting-Recruiting-to-Get/135282/, an article "A Reboot in Recruiting Women Into Computer Science", mentions two of the CS Principles Pilot programs (and gets lots wrong about CS Principles as well, e.g., there was no trial version of the new AP course in 25 public schools in Los Angeles, that was ECS another key program).
As you may have noticed over the past week, we have rolled out a new part of the site dedicated to professional development opportunities for CS teachers in the summer and fall of 2012. Here you can find out more about PD workshops in your area hosted by CSTA, CS4HS, and other organizations. For your convenience, all workshops are organized into a calendar as well as a sortable list.
If you are running a workshop that you would like us to add, please tell us about it!
Be sure to check out the special section dedicated to CS Principles and the CS 10k project in the June 2012 issue of Inroads. This section features guest editors Larry Snyder and Amy Briggs along with articles from many members of the CS Principles team.
