Students enrolled in the Informatics Diversity-Enhanced Workforce program embark upon an innovative Computing by Design (CxD) curriculum developed by IUPUI faculty and refined in the classroom with input from high school teachers. Students tackle new projects and learning modules each year.
The iDEW curriculum challenges and motivates high school students to solve problems in real-life contexts. Schools may establish connections with industry partners to provide counsel on today’s technology and IT workforce needs.
Project-based learning modules reflect the demands of industry and meet IU’s standards for excellence. With training and support from iDEW and IUPUI faculty, high school instructors can have confidence in teaching this curriculum.
