Brian Scarbeau Insights from a seasoned Computer Science Trainer
As a teacher, I've always felt that I needed to always learn more about computer science to make me a better teacher and to share that knowledge with my students. My students often times teach me things sometimes relevant to what's going on in the class and sometimes it's not. Summer is the only time to get some professional development. There are some free workshops that I could go to but it costs money for travel and lodging so I need to limit where I can go and choose wisely the event that I'd like to go. My professional development will start next week when Microsoft will host an MSDN event in Orlando at a local Regal theatre. There I'll learn more about the new .NET framework and ASP.NET. In July, I'll be travelling to San Diego to do a workshop on Web Programming at the Computer Science Teachers Association in San Diego. I have had the opportunity to speak at three of these events and I enjoy meeting new computer science teachers and talking about school issues. Finally, this summer, I'll be going to the Swan Hotel in Orlando for the AP national conference. There are several good sessions that I'll be attending. So, what are your professional development plans for this summer? Posted on Tuesday, May 16, 2006 4:31 AM Teaching AP CS | Back to top
