An Unconference is an informal and yet (slightly) structured way for a group of people to share out ideas in small, organic groups. Unbeknownst to us, we did one of these a few years ago and it was quite a hit, and has been requested as a topic since. So…
Our next PSCSTA meeting will be an Unconference!
When: March 24, 12:00 (arrive and socialize), 12:30-2:30 for program with more social time at the end
Where: Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Science & Engineering (CSE) Gates Commons (6th floor)
12:00 – Arrive/socialize (Parking is free on campus after noon)
12:30 – 2:30: Unconference!
2:30 – Time to continue discussion or to socialize
If you would like to come strictly as a participant! Great!
If you feel you have something to share, even better! Topics are finalized on the date of the Unconference but could include:
– What happened at SIGCSE?
– How K-12 curriculum is changing as more students are seeing CS at earlier grades.
– CS Teach strategies in Elementary/MS/HS
– What to do for post AP projects?
– There’s all this talk about Data Science? Should I be doing it?
– What’s a good Post AP class?
– Robotics dos and don’ts
– Or many others
If you have other topics you would like to include PLEASE bring them!
