A few reminders for the LibArts listserv folks:

We have a slack group - feel free to join!  (There is also a channel for the SIGCSE-TS Affiliated event)

  *   The link is good for 30 days from Feb 11, 2022.

There is a dissertation study on how Liberal Arts technology programs have integrated Cybersecurity!

  *   I am the researcher for this study and if you haven't read the listserv solicitation, please do so, and pass it on to anyone who might also be interested as recruitment is underway!  ( )

The SIGCSE-TS Affiliated event is coming up fast - hope you can join us in some fashion!
Innovations and Opportunities in Liberal Arts Computing Education

This Pre-Symposium event will promote connection and collaboration within the liberal arts computing community. This full day event will be split into two sessions. The morning session will focus on innovations in computing education in the liberal arts and will include both a panel presenting selected exemplar curricular innovations and then breakout sessions organized around the particular topics and challenges raised by the panelists. The afternoon session will be run in an unconference format allowing participants to select a topic of interest and then participate in small working groups to explore that topic and produce deliverables to be shared back with the community. Additional proposals for unconference sessions are still welcome.

This is an in-person event affiliated with the SIGCSE 2022 Technical Symposium and sponsored by the SIGCSE Committee on Computing Education in Liberal Arts Colleges. Attendees must register for the Technical Symposium and then additionally register for this event using the link above. There is no additional fee for this event.

A hybrid follow-up event building on these sessions will be held on Friday, April 1st and will be open to any interested attendee whether they have attended this SIGCSE event or not. More information about this hybrid event will be posted on the event site in early March.
