Transforming Computer Science Education with Industry Volunteers

Computing represents 60% of STEM jobs, but only 25% of schools teach CS.  Learn how TEALS partners teachers with developers and engineers to teach Intro and AP CS.There is an increasing demand for computer science courses yet a shortage of teachers with the subject matter expertise required to teach these classes. TEALS provides a short-term solution to the teacher shortage and helps schools build a long-term and sustainable computer science program by partnering teachers new to computer science with industry volunteers who have computer science content expertise. Teachers in these partnerships learn computer science while team-teaching with volunteers until they are comfortable teaching independently. In this session, participants will hear about the TEALS approach and discuss how they could volunteer to support their own Milwaukee region teachers.
