Preservice teachers from University of Indiana lead a lesson for 5th grade students

A volunteer group of experienced School of Education faculty developed this series of case studies, resources, and recommendations to provide guidance for other schools of education to implement and align their teacher preparation programs and graduate supplemental programs with the CSTA Standards for CS Teachers. We recognize that schools of education are coming to this work from multiple situations: Some have long standing teacher preparation programs for CS secondary teachers, while others may be eager to develop programs to meet new state policy requirements for CS teacher certification, or to integrate CS pedagogy into K–8 teacher preservice programs. We hope that the CSTA Standards for CS Teachers invite schools of education to evaluate what they are currently doing and look for opportunities to develop new collaborations, and guide faculty and administrators in schools of education as they develop new teacher preparation programs or refine existing ones.
