Best practices for crafting your application

Remember to include these key elements in your PD program:

  • computer science content
  • how educators will improve their confidence and effectiveness in teaching computer science
  • content that meets the local needs of educators with the potential to scale nationally and/or internationally
  • hands-on experience for participants that is interactive and allows them to manipulate the subject themselves
  • how you will develop and/or support an ongoing network of CS educators through a community of practice
  • a clear breakdown of how funding will be used throughout the program
  • resources for educators and other PD providers to use in their local communities
