Description

Four day Training-of-Trainers (TOT) with days 1 – 3 dealing with programming & how to deliver the content. Day 4 will address how to turn the training back on their Campus/District. The Computer Science Department at UT Dallas has a 5 day module for High School students that is delivered within a summer camp setting. The goal is to train participants teachers on how to take the content used in summer camps for use in either their classroom, in after school programs, and/or to start a computer science summer camp within their school or district. Dr. Veerasamy’s team can also be requested to help start programs in schools at no additional costs to participate. Participants from above 5 day training will have priority for this TOT training. This training will be held for this project, and a maximum of 30 teachers who can be served. Open spots will be made available at no charge to local math/science teachers including TRC STMs, MTMs, and UTeach Dallas graduates. These teachers will be counted as cadre members in the UTD Science Collaborative, or Math Collaborative (if funded), whichever is more appropriate. In addition, Dr. Veerasmay has agreed to wave registration costs for any participants in this program who wish to attend a summer camp to see first hand how implementation is done.
