The CS Discoveries and CS Principles Expanded Learning Program (ELP) is a two and a half day, summer professional development experience created by a collective of Midwest Code.org 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 Code.org 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.
Teachers from Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, and Wisconsin who have previously participated in a year-long professional learning program for Code.org CS Discoveries or Code.org CS Principles from 2016-2021 are eligible to attend.
