As part of Rebecca Vivian’s Barbara Cail STEM Fellowship exploring research into best practice for promoting the participation of young people, particularly girls, in STEM, we will be presenting a Special Session at the upcoming SIGCSE 2017 conference. It would be great to talk through Rebecca’s initial findings, and to hear your own observations at this event.
R. Vivian, K. Falkner and C. Szabo, Broadening Participation in Computer Science: Key Strategies from International Findings, Accepted for SIGCSE 2017.
This special session is based around key findings of a Barbara Cail STEM Fellowship that aims to inform key stakeholders about international best practices for broadening participation and diversity in computer science. This special session provides opportunities for the audience to contribute to this research discussion and to analyse and develop strategies for their own unique contexts, in a facilitated approach using the research framework and key findings.
