Mission critical:
What are the “must haves” for teacher training?

Teachers, we seek your counsel: we’re developing a training program so teachers can use GitHub in their courses with confidence. This quick survey will help that program take shape.

Learn by doing at Cal Poly with GitHub and Raspberry Pi

Professor Chris Lupo has taught at California Polytechnic State University for eight years and recently revamped his upper-level Architecture course using GitHub Classroom.

In this post, he shares his workflow for deeper insight into student work, efficient debugging, and community support.

Here is how the Classroom team plans to make progress through 2017:

Over the summer we will be working on features so you’re good-to-go on day one of your fall courses.

Meet the summer interns

You may see some new usernames around the GitHub Education issues and forums–please welcome our awesome 2017 interns.

We’re thrilled to have the following folks working with us over the summer, digging in on Classroom, planning community events for their schools, and opening more pull requests than we can keep up with. Please welcome:

We’re very stoked to have these students with us this summer. Hopefully next year we can have a student from your school :slight_smile:
