CodeHS Partners with St. Catherine University to Offer Teachers Graduate Credit for Professional Development Courses


San Francisco, CA, August 22, 2018 --(PR.com)-- CodeHS is proud to partner with St. Catherine University (St. Kate’s), the largest private women’s university in the country. The new partnership provides teachers who complete CodeHS online professional development the opportunity to earn graduate credit from St. Kate’s.

There are four approved CodeHS online professional development courses including Teaching Intro to Computer Science, Teaching AP Computer Science Principles, Teaching Computing Ideas, and Teaching Intro Python. After completing one of these courses, teachers submit a credit request form and small credit processing fee on CodeHS to receive St. Kate’s credit.

The Education Department at St. Catherine University has been researching gender equitable teaching strategies in STEM and best practices for teaching women and girls computational thinking and coding. Program Director Dr. Siri Anderson commented, “We know many teachers who are eager for their students to learn computer science skills, but as novice learners themselves feel anxious to tackle this content area on their own. We were thrilled to discover the high quality online curriculum that CodeHS offers to scaffold teachers’ success with integrating computer science instruction into their classrooms.”

Each course completed is worth one graduate credit. Graduate credit can be a great way to help teachers excel in their career, advance on the pay scale, reach licensure requirements, earn additional education credits, and more.
