A toolkit for computing educators to encourage diversity within the subject created by the diversity and inclusion working group of CAS. You can access it here.
It includes: - A workshop plan and presentation for hub leaders, teacher trainers, master teachers and computing educators. - A literature review of articles and research - A list of free classroom resources for encouraging diversity in computing.
We hope that this toolkit will be used by hub leaders and master teachers to run sessions on diversity and inclusion. We are really interested in hearing your feedback on the toolkit so that we can keep improving it.
Duration: 60 - 90 minute workshop
Teaches: At the end of the training, learners will be able to: - Explain the problems in recruiting diverse groups of students into computing and STEM subjects and why it is important. - Understand the scientific research on unconscious bias and its influence in schools and society - Commit to taking at least one action to improve diversity in your computing department.
