Researching CS Education to Drive Equity and Effectiveness
Colleen Lewis, Associate Professor, Computer Science, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign,

In my work, I aim to understand and improve computer science (CS) education to make it more equitable and effective. Equitable and effective CS instruction is essential for broadening participation in computing, responding to the growing demand for computer scientists, and guiding the expansion of CS at the K–12 level. My research is organized around two overarching themes: (1) understanding and optimizing CS learning, and (2) understanding and removing barriers to CS. I will share a brief background of my work in each of these areas and a current project in each area.
