Eligible Applicants

Texas Secondary Teachers

 

Description

The Texas Regional Collaboratives (TRC) at UT Austin, in partnership with Oracle Academy, is offering a free series of courses for Texas teachers interested in teaching computer science. This series of professional development experiences will prepare participants to teach courses such as Computer Science I, Computer Science II, or AP Computer Science. Since the AP Computer Science A course is based on the Java programming language, this will be the focus of the technical training component.

The TRC CS Network will consist of online coursework in Summer 2015 and potential face-to-face training held in Austin.

 

Certificates of Participation

Certificates stating 32 Continuing Professional Education hours (CPE credits) earned will be sent by Oracle Academy after the participant has completed all three sessions and the online course evaluation. Participants should receive the certificate approximately four weeks after the event. Any questions about certificates should be directed to academy-events_ww@oracle.com.
