May 2, 2015 - In April, ECEP and CAITE sponsored a pilot series of free virtual professional development webinars to “train the trainers” for computer science PD providers in Massachusetts. Webinars were one-hour in length and led by Barbara Ericson, ECEP Co-PI and Director of Computing Outreach and Senior Research Scientist at Georgia Tech’s College of Computing. Twelve educators from 8 districts in Massachusetts (Framingham, Holyoke, Groton, Reading, Waltham, Winchester, Worcester, and Wellesley Hills) participated in the live webinars. Each webinar was recorded and available for viewing later.
Webinar topics included the following:
- Designing & Planning an Effective Workshop
- Building an Educator Community
