Wednesday, May 11

4:00 – 6:00 pm ET

Registration Closed May 8

How should computing departments get useful and actionable feedback from employers to help adapt curricula?

For Faculty in Computing Departments

Registration Closed May 8

Whom is this Addressed To?

  • Faculty and administrators in all computing programs.

 

What is this about?

This virtual Affiliated-Event will explore a key challenge for computing academia: 

 

How do we get useful and actionable feedback on undergraduate computing coursework from industry computing professionals?

 

We already know that overly simplistic and high-level feedback (“teach more stuff”) is difficult to act on, given constraints in academia. If you had access to industry professionals, what specific questions would you ask to help you adapt YOUR courses and curricula?

 

Honorarium for Participation

  • Eligible workshop attendees will receive an honorarium in the range of $50-$100 (subject to U.S. residency rules), subject to the number of participants, workshop capacity limits, and the total honorarium budget.

 

Workshop Overview

  • The first half of this short, virtual 2-hour workshop will feature panelists sharing their views.

  • In the second half, participants will engage in group activities to refine and explore questions that would be relevant to their courses and curricula.

  • One concrete outcome will be survey questions that will be used to inform a survey about CS curricula distributed to groups of practitioners nationwide, as part of the DEAP project, whose results will be made available to workshop participants.

 

Workshop Details

  • 4.00 - 6.00 pm ET, Wednesday, May 11, 2022.

What is DEAP?

DEAPening Employer Academic Partnerships (DEAP) is a project funded by the National Science Foundation centered on developing a national alliance of partners from (a) academic computing programs and institutions, and (b) companies or other organizations that employ computing. DEAP seeks to develop the academic-industry partnership needed to improve graduate preparation for long-term success in industry careers.
