We have exciting news to share with the members of the SIGCSE Committee on Computing Education in the Liberal Arts. We have been approved to offer an affiliated event with SIGCSE TS 2021!
While our pre-symposium event this past spring was sadly disrupted, we received good feedback from those who were able to attend on ideas for our next event and were able to form three Working Groups focused on planning for TS 2021. These Working Groups are developing sessions for our event themed around Liberal Arts Approaches to Computing Curricula, CS+X Courses, and Mentoring, Recruiting, and Hiring for Liberal Arts CS Education. As with the 2021 Technical Symposium, this will be an entirely on-line event.
We are still working with the Technical Symposium organizers about some of the details around offering affiliated events. Once we know a bit more, we will be able to send out an official Call for Participation for those wishing to present work they have done in one of these areas, as well as information about how to register to attend. So watch this mailing list for more information...
We look forward to being able to connect with many of you this Spring!
