Professional Development

Many schools want to start offering computer science courses, but do not have the teacher capacity to do so. Further, hiring experienced teachers who have a background in programming is difficult.

With the CodeHS online professional development course, we'll help train teachers at your school to teach excellent computer science courses--no programming experience required. We've worked hundreds of new computer science teachers, empowering them with the skills, pedagogical knowledge, and confidence to go into the classroom and start teaching great computer science courses.
