In today’s diverse classrooms, educators must embrace the cultural identities of the students they teach. Additionally, we must engage students and teachers from groups historically underrepresented in computer science. In this interactive discussion, we will present questions and have an open dialogue between panelists and participants that seeks to inform culturally responsive teaching practices and diverse recruitment in Computer Science classrooms. Let’s discuss the best way to impact ALL students!
