Both training sessions will be held online.
Texas Computer Science teachers and potential Texas Computer Science teachers.
The Texas Regional Collaboratives (TRC) in the Center from STEM Education at UT Austin, in partnership with Oracle Academy, and TCEA, 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 course is based on the Java programming language, this will be the focus of the technical training component. The KCJO online coursework in Spring 2016 will focus on Java Fundamentals.
Completers will be eligible to participate in the follow-up online Java Programming Course in late Spring 2016.
The application can be accessed at KCJO Spring 2016 Application. The deadline for applying this course is February 17, 2016. Registration information will be sent directly to eligible participants.
Certificates of Participation
Certificates stating 32 Continuing Professional Education hours (CPE credits) earned will be sent electronically from Oracle Academy after the participant has completed the online course evaluation. Participants should receive the certificate two to three weeks after the event. Any questions about certificates should be directed toward the contact person listed on this page.
