Concordia-Chicago offers free coding tutorials during Hour of Code

11/13/2015

To kick off Computer Science Education Week, Concordia University Chicago invites community members of all ages to campus for the worldwide Hour of Code on Friday, Dec. 4, from 5-7 p.m.

Hour of Code is an international initiative to promote computer science education by showing that anyone can learn the basics of computer coding. At the Concordia-Chicago event, sponsored by the College of Graduate and Innovative Programs, attendees will hear from a guest speaker, complete an hour-long, computer-based tutorial and receive a certificate of completion.

Licensed educators can receive one Professional Development Hour (PDH) credit for participating.

All attendees must register online at gradschool.cuchicago.edu/code. Children under age 14 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Participants should bring a laptop, tablet or smartphone—the tutorials have options for every age and experience level and work on any modern browser.

For information, contact Dr. Kathryn Wozniak, Assistant Professor of Instructional Design and Technology, at Kathryn.Wozniak@cuchicago.edu.
