Introduction to Computational Thinking
Topical — 2013
This workshop aims to expose participants to and inspire them with new techniques, teaching materials, and applications to use computational models in the undergraduate curriculum. By bringing faculty and teachers from different disciplines together so that they can learn how to incorporate computational models into their classrooms and research projects, it will advance the use of computing in undergraduate science education. We desire to have participants from a broad range of disciplines, including computer science, mathematics, and the physical and life sciences.

Details
The formal workshop with interactive explorations and hands-on exercises will take place from Monday through Wednesday. The content will explore new techniques, teaching materials, and applications using computational models in the undergraduate curriculum. The workshop goal is to form collaboration between faculty and teachers from different disciplines so that they can learn to incorporate computational models into classroom and research projects to advance the use of computing in undergraduate science education, mathematics, and physical and life science. Instructors will be available on Thursday for individual help on building specific models and for working on lesson plans.
