Sacred Heart University, a Regional Partner, strives to enhance computer science education across Connecticut. Below are details about professional learning options as SHU works to meet the diverse needs of educators in our community. Please complete the needs survey to inform professional learning workshops offered.


Workshop Details:

  • Locations: Fairfield, Plainfield, and possibly Windsor Locks
  • Format: In-person interactive sessions, collaborative discussions, and hands-on activities


Programs Offered:

  • Elementary Master CS Teacher (K-5)
  • Computer Science Discoveries, with AI/ML (6-10)
  • Computer Science Principles (9-12)
  • Computer Science A (10-12)
  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) for Seasoned CS Teachers
  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) for Teachers New to CS 


The new AI/ML course gives students a deep understanding of how artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) function. The course emphasizes imparting knowledge about the principles and mechanisms of AI/ML rather than offering an interface with applications such as Chat GPT. This approach allows students to develop a strong foundation in AI/ML, fostering a more comprehensive understanding of the technology. 


Planned Schedule:

  • Fairfield: June 24-28, 2024 8:30-3:30
  • Plainfield: July 22-26, 2024 8:30-3:30
  • Windsor Locks: TBA
