PyCon Pittsburgh. April 15-23, 2020.

Python Education Summit @ PyCon!

In 2020, PyCon will be holding its eighth annual Python Education Summit. The Summit is a gathering of teachers and educators focused on bringing coding literacy, through Python, to as broad a group of audiences as possible. We invite educators from all venues to consider joining the discussion, share insights, learn new techniques and tools and generally share their passion for education. We are looking for educators from many venues: authors; schools, colleges, universities; community-based workshops; online programs; and government. Not only will we have a wide array of full-blown talks, we will also have a round of lightning talks!

Presenting

We will have a track of talks during the morning session AND a “mini-sprints” afternoon session. We invite anyone interested in Python and education to submit proposals. Talks / mini-sprint ideas will be selected based upon feedback received.

Goals

The goal of the Summit is to bring together leaders from multiple educational venues to:

It is our hope that the Summit will serve as a catalyst leading into the rest of PyCon to encourage even more interaction - hallway discussions, open spaces, lightning talks, and sprints.

Anyone attending this conference will gain a broader understanding of approaches, issues, resources, and constraints in teaching Python, will have the opportunity to contribute to the discussion, and will make contacts with other teachers of Python from across the community.

Schedule and Format

The Education Summit takes place on Thursday, April 16th, the day before the main tracks of PyCon begin so that summit attendees will be able to attend all of the regular talks.

The Summit is scheduled to run all day, from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, with breaks in the morning and afternoon and one hour for lunch.

What to expect?

We encourage all attendees to engage in the dialogue. We are anxious to hear your questions, see your ideas and experience your passion for education and Python. So please come willing to learn, to participate and most importantly, to teach.
