Autumn of CS:
Workshops & Community of Practice Meetings
September, October, and November

What is the Autumn of CS?

In the months of September, October, and November, you are invited to participate alongside other K-12 California educators in workshops and a community of practice meeting that features the California K-12 Computer Science Standards

New 2024 Autumn of CS offerings coming soon!

Sample 2023 Orientation Workshops That Were Offered

The Seasons of CS Orientation Workshops are designed to provide an introduction to the California K-12 Computer Science Standards, and they are offered every month in the Autumn, Winter, and Spring seasons. These workshops are three-hour experiences, which may include a combination of "live" activities hosted in-person or virtually and "on-demand" activities in which you can participate at a time that works for you. You will be compensated with a stipend for actively participating in the Orientation Workshop. You are invited to register for one or more of the Seasons of CS Orientation Workshops:

Note: At our virtual computer science professional learning workshops, we prioritize fostering an interactive and collaborative environment. These workshops are designed not only to impart standards-based knowledge and skills but also to provide California K-12 educators with the invaluable opportunity to connect with their peers who share a passion for computer science and educational technology. Considering this emphasis on connecting with others, we have chosen not to permit AI notetaking bots, like Otter AI, during our sessions. Our decision aligns with the expectations set by the California Department of Education, which requires active, live participation from educators to qualify for stipends related to these synchronous workshops. We understand that everyone's learning preferences differ. If you're someone who leans towards asynchronous learning, we encourage you to check out the other Seasons of CS learning opportunities.
