Expanded Learning Program

– or – Expanded Learning Program

The Expanded Learning Program was designed to provide ongoing support and community engagement for teachers that have already participated in the Professional Learning Program (CS Discoveries or CS Principles). 


Join us for a two and a half-day, summer professional development experience created by a collective of Midwest Regional Partners. During this program, educators who previously participated in a CS Discoveries or CS Principles Professional Learning Program will deepen their computer science pedagogy, explore additional facets of the CSD or CSP curriculum, reinforce their understanding, expand their confidence, and build community.

On the first day, teachers will join a community of educators sharing like-implementations to expand their pedagogy and understanding of the curriculum. The second day will be a series of self-selected breakout sessions led by peer educators exploring a lesson, unit, or teaching practice. On the third morning, a series of unconference sessions will be facilitated to allow small groups to continue to expand their learning in the topics that are most relevant to their professional development.

  • Dates – June 22-24 via Zoom
  • Cost: Free!
  • 1 hr of teacher relicensure credit available through the AEA
