Goals & Format of Workshop Manuel A. Pérez-Quiñones Computer Science Virginia Tech Thursday, November 1, 2007 1
NSF/CISE - CPATH Computing has permeated and in many cases transformed almost all aspects of our everyday lives. As computing becomes more important in all sectors of society, so does the preparation of a globally competitive U.S. workforce with knowledge and understanding of critical computing concepts, methodologies, and techniques. Unfortunately, despite the deep and pervasive impact of computing and the creative efforts of individuals in a small number of institutions, undergraduate computing education today often looks much as it did several decades ago.

NSF/CISE - CPATH CISE is calling for colleges and universities to work together, and with other stakeholders in undergraduate computing education including industry, professional societies and other types of organizations, to formulate and implement plans to revitalize undergraduate computing education in the United States.

Goals of Workshop 1 • How is computing studied in the context of another discipline (e.g., architecture, art, writing, theater, music) and what can we learn from them? • What do the other disciplines need from computing to make the most of the knowledge exchange? Thursday, November 1, 2007 5

Some of the problems we face... • Lack of diversity, problems attracting women and minorities • Low enrollments yet high demand for graduates • Few opportunities in high school to take appropriate courses • Myth: dot-com bust or outsourcing meant no more jobs Thursday, November 1, 2007 7
Things to consider... • To our colleagues from other disciplines: • How is computing taught in your disciplines? • What sort of knowledge “prerequisites” do you ﬁnd work best? • Do you face some of the same problems we face? Thursday, November 1, 2007 8
Format of Workshop • 5 presentations followed by discussions • End of the day “recap” • Ask lots of questions • Focus on goals presented above • Survey at end of workshop • Use online resources for discussion: http://groups.google.com/group/rethinking-csed/ Thursday, November 1, 2007 9
