The Committee on Computing Education in Liberal Arts Colleges was pleased to have the opportunity to connect with many of you at the SIGCSE Technical Symposium in Toronto. For those of you who were not able to attend our Affiliated Event, we wanted to share the following information and resources.

  *   The morning session of our event on Innovations and Opportunities in Liberal Arts Computing Education focused on both curricular innovations and course-level innovations. The "Resulting Materials" section of the events page includes the submitted materials from our four speakers during this session:

  *   Our afternoon session presented a Curricular Practices Workbook developed my members of the Committee to provide an identity-focused curriculum design and revision process that can inform department's usage of CS2013 and CS2023. A PDF draft of the Workbook is available on our CS2023 Committee page: Updated versions of our Workbook will be posted here as we review the feedback we have received and get more information about the final form of CS2023.

  *   As a reminder, the Committee site maintains a record of all of our activities, including repositories of the presentation content from previous SIGCSE Affiliated Events and notes on planned activities:

Finally, one of the major topics of interest that we heard about from the community at our Affiliated Event was related to the content of BA versus BS degrees in Computer Science, the considerations that go into whether to offer a BA or a BS, and the relationship between these two programs at schools that choose to offer both. We are forming a Working Group to explore these questions further with the goal of presenting their findings at our Affiliated Event at SIGCSE 2024 and possibly in other venues. If you would be interested in participating in this project, contact Andrea Tartaro ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>) for more information.

If you would be interested in helping with other elements of the Committee's work, such as serving on a program committee for our SIGCSE 2024 Affiliated Event or proposing other activities, contact Amanda Holland-Minkley ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>). We are always looking for volunteers!
