Texas Computer Science teachers that completed the 8-week synchronous online Java Fundamentals course (Session I) that began the week of October 6, 2014 are eligible to attend a free face-to-face professional development (Session Two). Travel and lodging will be reimbursed by the TRC.
The Texas Regional Collaboratives (TRC) 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 TRC CS Network will consist of both online coursework and face-to-face training held in Austin.

Certificates stating 16 Continuing Professional Education hours (CPE credits) earned will be sent electronically after the participant has completed the online course evaluation.
