A tuition-free summer workshop "Python First: A Lab-Based Digital
Introduction to Computer Science" will be held at Chapman University in
Orange, Southern California, June 19-22 (Monday - Thursday). 

This workshop is open to computer science educators who seek
alternatives to either purely commercial languages, such as Java or C++,
or purely educational environments, such as Scheme and Alice, for
introductory computer science courses. 

Participants in this workshop will learn how to make intro computer
courses more attractive to students (1) by teaching an easy to learn yet
practical and effective scripting language - Python, (2) by making all
course resources available in a comprehensive online study pack (
http://studypack.com ), and (3) by using an extensive set of detailed
and easy to follow self-guided labs. Prior knowledge of the Python
language is not expected.

The summer workshop is tuition-free. A nominal registration fee will
cover meals and snacks. Transportation costs and lodging are the
responsibility of the attendee. 

Please see:

form. Or contact Dr. Arnold Shugarman (Shugarman at chapman.edu) for more
