Inclusive Teaching in CS Professional Development

URI Provides Professional Development that prepares a certified teacher to incorporate Inclusive Teaching in CS practices in a computer science classroom.

  • The PD makes no assumptions about the background of the teacher, except that they are are willing to learn.
  • The PD is targeted to middle and high school CS teachers, other educators may inquire about about participating.
  • A stipend of $1000 from a federal grant will be provided by URI to each educator who completes all PD training requirements. This is while funds last - we recommend attending the November training if possible.
  • The cost of PD is $500 per participant paid to URI by the school/District/teacher (the training cost is not covered by the federal grant, just the teacher stipend is covered due to the nature of the grant funding).
  • Seats are limiited and PD sessions will be closed when the maximum is reached.
