The Peer Teaching Summit 2022 will bring together Computer Science (CS) faculty and peer teaching leaders who are seeking resources, tools, and strategies for training and supporting peer teachers (also referred to as undergraduate teaching assistants, tutors, etc.) for large enrollment CS classes. Undergraduates can be 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 supports and trains undergraduates as teaching assistants, section leaders, lab assistants, mentors, and tutors. How do peer teachers most effectively help students to problem-solve? To debug? To create an inclusive culture in computing? To gain confidence? In describing their programs, participants will share best practices, lessons learned, and relevant research. This summit will connect faculty and peer teaching leaders who are interested in brainstorming and sharing tools and strategies for peer teaching programs.
Deadline: February 18th, 2022
We will be providing stipends to support attendance at the Peer Teaching Summit 2022 for 40-55 attendees (depending on interest, attendance modality, budget, and grant restrictions). In-person attendees will receive a $1000 stipend and virtual attendees will receive $250. We expect we’ll be able to invite most (if not all) applicants to attend the Peer Teaching Summit 2022, but we’re mindful of space constraints. We’ll follow up with accepted participants. Note that we cannot support stipends for those outside of the United States.
