National Computer Science Education Preservice Case Studies

Anne Ottenbreit-Leftwich

This project will explore the core question: How are schools of education preparing teachers to teach computer science in K-12 schools? We seek to create a public repository to serve as ongoing inspiration for teacher education programs as they work to include CS/CT.METHOD. This study will utilize a three-phase mixed method research design. The three phases will be to (1) develop a pathways framework, (2) create multiple case study examples of CSteacher education programs, and (3) survey the status of CS teacher education programs.
