The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) and the Discovery Partners Institute (DPI) are launching a Teaching Endorsement in Computer Science that will prepare more teachers to instruct on the subject.
This cohort-based, online program lasts five semesters, with an optional capstone course. It meets ISBE’s credit requirement for obtaining a teaching endorsement in computer science. The program also includes a partnership with Chicago Public Schools (CPS), which is helping to identify and recruit teachers.
