Organized by members of the SIGCSE Committee on Computing Education in Liberal Arts Colleges, this Affiliated Event will promote connection and collaboration within the liberal arts computing community. This full day event will be split into two sessions. The morning session will focus on topics covering the breadth of opportunities and challenges faced by liberal arts computing educators. These topics may include innovative courses, curricula, co-curricular programs, DEI initiatives, academic and career advising, faculty recruiting and retention, and other issues as identified to have a specific liberal arts perspective. Topics for discussion will be solicited from the community at large and selected submissions will be presented and discussed at the event. Accompanying materials and/or notes will be added to the Committee’s growing repository of materials. The afternoon session will provide facilitated workshop sessions focused on “A Workbook for Distinctive Computer Science Curricula: Designing Programs Aligned with Liberal Arts Institutional and Departmental Identity” which was created by Committee members as a liberal-arts supplement to the ACM/IEEE/AAAI CS2023 model curriculum. Parallel workshop sessions will be available for faculty who are entirely new to curriculum design, faculty who are experienced with curriculum design but new to our Workbook, and faculty who have worked through the first steps of the Workbook in previous workshops and are ready to proceed with later stages. Throughout the event, sessions will give participants an opportunity to learn about work already taking place within the liberal arts computing community as well as to engage in Q&A and breakout discussions. All interested faculty and students are welcome.
