Ongoing Academic Year Workshops

Did you attend a 2023 Summer of CS Workshop? The Seasons of CS Team is here to support you throughout the year as you embark on your computer science learning pathway! 

Since this is a yearlong professional development opportunity, you not only get free access to any 2023 Summer of CS workshop you choose, you also are guaranteed additional academic year workshops of just-in-time support where you will meet virtually after school with your workshop provider to reinforce, reflect, and extend your learning. These workshop meetings will be daily during the weeks listed below. Workshop time will be a mix of synchronous and asynchronous time. Synchronous time will be specified by your workshop Facilitator. You will be paid a $175 incentive for every 6 hours of ongoing professional learning.

For Grades K-5: September 11-14, 2023 (4-5:30pm) and March 11-14, 2024 (4-5:30pm).
For Grades 6-12: September 11-14, 2023 (4-5:30pm), November 6-9, 2023 (4-5:30pm), January 8-11, 2024 (4-5:30pm), and March 11-14, 2024 (4-5:30pm).

In addition to the academic year workshops listed above, the hope is that teachers and paraprofessionals who participate in 2023 Summer of CS workshops will deliver 30/50/75 hours of CS instruction, depending on grade level, to students during the 2023-2024 school year. 

This delivery could include integrated lessons, standalone units of instruction, after-school clubs and activities, and/or other creative approaches.  The workshop you choose to participate in this summer will provide you with ample content and strategies for instruction. The optional quarterly Community of Practice gatherings during 2023-2024 (listed above) will provide you with opportunities to collaborate with other K-12 teachers across the state on the topic of implementation. The grant that funds the Summer of CS asks for participating teachers to acknowledge an intent to deliver the instruction.  You will receive the resources and support to help you try to do 30/50/75 hours in the first school year.
