The certificate in Computer Science Teacher Education is a four-course graduate-level certificate designed for teachers that do not have a formal education in computer science, but are interested in developing and teaching a variety of introductory computer science courses to middle and high school students. During the capstone course, participants will identify a topic of interest, develop course material, and teach it to classmates with the goal of then offering the course at the school where they work.
