University of Alabama professor’s free course trains high school teachers

By Associated Engineering Press

A University of Alabama computer science professor will lead a free, online course this summer to train high school teachers from across the nation in a new computer-science course and future College Board AP exam.

“This is taking the ideas that we planned regionally for Alabama and scaling it up to work with teachers across the United States who have the same interests in offering this course in their high schools in the near future,” UA professor Jeff Gray said.

In 1837, The University of Alabama became one of the first five universities in the nation to offer engineering classes. Today, UA’s College of Engineering has more than 5,800 students and more than 150 faculty. In recent years, students in the College have been named USA Today All-USA College Academic Team members, Goldwater, Hollings, Portz, Boren, Mitchell and Truman scholars.
