  • Expanding Career Pipelines by Unhiding the Hidden Curriculum of University Computing Majors February 1, 2024
    by Philip Guo, Associate Professor of Cognitive Science, UC San Diego Everyone who attends college learns a formal curriculum by taking classes, but there is also a hidden curriculum just beneath the surface of their college experience. This hidden curriculum consists of the “unspoken lessons, norms, values, and perspectives that impact learning and academic performance. […]
  • Expanding the Pipeline: “Regular” CS x Inclusive Design October 2, 2023
    By Rosalinda Garcia (Oregon State University), Margaret Burnett (Oregon State University), and Patricia Morreale (Kean University)  What happens if CS faculty teach inclusive design skills throughout core undergraduate CS courses?

  • Expanding the Pipeline: Distributed REsearch Apprenticeships for Master’s (DREAM) October 1, 2022
    The Distributed REsearch Apprenticeships for Master’s (DREAM) is a pilot NSF program being offered by a nationwide consortium of colleges and universities that have created “bridge to MS in CS” programs for students with non-CS bachelor’s degrees.  Schools in the MSCS Pathways to Computing Consortium provide a new pathway for people who studied something other […]
  • Expanding the Pipeline: Addressing the distribution of prior experience in CS1 June 2, 2022
    Imagine you walk into Japanese 101 and on the first day the professor asks, “Has anyone taken Japanese before?” and everyone raises their hand but you and a handful of other students. Imagine then that your classmates not only raise their hands but respond to the professor in Japanese!  At age 18, I would have […]
  • Expanding the Pipeline: The Context, Importance, and Experience of Writing Departmental BPC Plans May 1, 2022
    Efforts to increase participation from minoritized communities has been going on in earnest for over a decade. Unfortunately, we have yet to expand the group of faculty and staff engaged in these activities and have only made a marginal difference in who is studying computing. This article discusses BPC Plans as an attempt to supplement […]

Additionally, there were 15 panels, 9 special sessions, 24 workshops, 15 […]
  • Expanding the Pipeline: The Center for Research and Education on Accessible Technology and Experiences (CREATE) March 2, 2022
    In an era of rapidly evolving technology and increasing interconnectedness, full participation in society depends on the successful use of technology. Thus, to ensure equity and participation for people with disabilities, technology must be accessible—we must create and adapt interactive systems to improve access to technology and to the world at large. The University of […]
