The Peer Teaching Summit will bring together Computer Science (CS) faculty and peer teaching leaders who are seeking resources, tools, and strategies for training and supporting undergraduates in the role of peer teachers for large enrollment CS classes. Undergraduates can be effectively employed in support of a department’s teaching mission to improve student engagement, learning, and retention - particularly among students from groups underrepresented in CS.
Summit participants will discuss how their program uses undergraduates as teaching assistants, section leaders, lab assistants, mentors, and tutors. In describing their programs, participants will share best practices, lessons learned, and relevant research.
The Peer Teaching Fellows Program is made possible by the generous support of Google and its CS Capacity Grant program.
We are seeking participants from a variety of departments to ensure broad coverage of types of institution: public & private institutions, research universities, undergraduate-focused colleges, and minority-serving institutions.
Each participating institution is strongly encouraged to include at least two people:
This session also welcomes participants who are interested in building a program for engaging undergraduates in peer teaching in a department that does not currently do so.

Each participant selected is eligible to recieve up to $1000 of reimbursed expenses associated with SIGCSE 2019 (travel, hotel, registration, etc.).
