Thanks for attending the Welcome to RPPforCS webinar. We know that our presentation contained a lot of information so we wanted to condense it onto this webpage. We look forward to working with over the next several years.

You can access a recording of the webinar here.

Resources Created through RPPforCS

  • Searchable project database
    This database allows you to search through our existing community of projects on a range of characteristics. You can use this resource to find people who are geographically close to you, working on a similar problem of practice, working with a similar student or teacher population, and more!

 

  • Monthly newsletter
    Each month the RPPforCS team produces a newsletter that is chock-full of updates, announcements, deadlines and dates for conferences and other opportunities, as well as share-outs from our community of projects. Follow the link for the complete archive.

 

  • Archived webinar recordings
    We host monthly topical webinars that feature experts, community members, and other organizations. These webinars address both pressing issues for RPPs and topical problems in Computer Science Education. For most webinars we have a video recording of the presentation and discussion, public-facing slides, as well as notes documents from our breakout sessions.

 

  • Research Practice Briefs
    Periodically we’ll interview a small number of community members about a particular phenomena within the projects (for instance, culturally responsive computing, engaging women and girls, or utilizing the health self-assessment tool) and create a short Research Practice Brief (RPB). These briefs are intended to give a quick snapshot of what’s going on inside various projects.

 

  • Theme Studies
    Theme studies are intended to be somewhat more rigorous than an RPB and connect you to other resources in a contextualized way. These are produced on a semi-annual basis, and involve a greater number of projects than an RPB.

 

  • Results from our Annual Community Survey Summary | Full Report
    We administer and annual survey to our community of projects seeking their feedback about our community, as well as their experiences working in an RPP and the perceived efficaciousness of the methodology. We ask some direct questions about advice that PIs would give to incoming projects that may be worth your time to review.

 

  • Health Self-Assessment Tool (developed using the RPP assessment framework that you can read about below)
    This tool was designed to help RPP teams assess their own functioning and provide language for identifying how you can improve your partnership over time.
