SIGCSE 2016 Pre-Symposium: “Computing Principles and Computation in the First Course – Exemplars from China”
  • Would you like to know what professors have to say about computational thinking in practice?
  • How would one of the fastest computers in the world, the Tainhe-2, influence computational thinking in parallel?
  • How has computation education been transformed in China in recent years?
  • Do you know universities in China are implementing a structure and approach for its essential and core CS1 computing course?
  • What does the Chinese government do to help expose university students to computing and technologies?

This workshop will be hosted by Peking University, who has been collaborating with Microsoft Research Asia for years to promote computer science teaching in China. Professors from China universities will provide their perspectives on computing education from high school to university. Furthermore, Computational Thinking as another way of thinking will be discussed by a panel of educators across America and China. Participants will be able to discuss the variances in global computing education at universities.
