Summer Conference for Computer Studies Educators

Summer Institute for CS Educators

The Summer Conference for Computer Studies Educators hosted by the Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing (CEMC) provides resources for educators to implement the computer science and computer engineering curriculum in their classrooms. Every August, participants spend three days networking with other educators, learning new skills and brainstorming classroom activity ideas.

Intended Audience

This three-day residential conference is designed for high school computer studies educators. However, interested elementary school educators are welcome to attend.

Registrations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. We expect that we will have enough room for anyone who wants to participate in the 2024 Summer Conference for Computer Studies Educators, but to be ensured a spot, it is best to register early. Every participant is encouraged to submit a shared resource related to curriculum upon registration.


The registration fee is $250 for each participant. This includes any applicable taxes, meals and accommodation. The conference fee remains the same for everyone regardless of whether they choose to stay in the accommodation provided.
