Tweb site for The Imperial Oil Summer Institute for Teachers of Computer Studies. This is the seventh year the Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing (CEMC) at the University of Waterloo and the Association for Computer Studies Educators (ACSE) have collaborated on a Summer Institute for Computer Studies educators and the fourth of five years of funding by the Imperial Oil Foundation.
Thirty educators met from August 15-19, 2006 for four days of intensive professional development in Computer and Information Science and Computer Engineering. The number of participants this year was significantly lower than previous years, however the enthusiasm level and the amount of learning that was present during this year’s Summer Institute was fantastic. Based upon our experience and feedback from previous Summer Institutes we have been able to improve the conference each year. This year we ran up to three parallel sessions designed for CS and CE teachers, both new and experienced. This would not be possible without wonderful presenters coming from the ranks of retired high school teachers, current high school teachers, and faculty members and graduate students from the University of Waterloo.
