SIGCSE's Committee Initiative encourages all SIGCSE members to participate in substantive discussions on areas of community interest, with the goals of investigating topics in depth and culminating with substantive reports.
The List of Current and Past Committees hints at the potential value of this initiative. SIGCSE members are encouraged to propose additional committees. Requirements:
- Clarification of a focus
- Determination of a committee charge, including a proposed product (e.g., a report)
- Members interested in participating
Some promising committee topics include:
- Use of Collaborative Learning in Computing Education
- What are CS, IS, IT, Software Engineering, etc.?
- How to Support Oral and Written Communication in the Computing Curriculum
- Survey of the Use of Embedded Device Programming (Robots, Phones, Cameras, etc.) in Computing Education
- Pre-college Outreach Programs
Perhaps you would consider starting a committee on one these topics, or a favorite topic of your own? For more information, see Getting Started.
