Michael E. Caspersen has been invited to join the ACM Education Council

ACM Education Council is probably best known for the work on curriculum recommendations, but K-12 (computing in school) and broadening participation are also important topics on the council's agenda.

The strategic objectives of the council are

  • To provide a focus for ACM activity and leadership in the general area of computing education
  • To provide leadership for the computing community in curricular development and guidance at all levels of education (specifically including K-12) with the emphasis being on higher education
  • To increase the status and standing of computing education

The ACM Educaiton Council is co-chaired by Jane Prey (Microsoft Research and NSF) and Mehran Sahami (Stanford).
