2016 UTeach Conference

We loved the 2016 UTeach Conference!

The 10th annual UTeach Conference was held May 24–26, 2016, at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin. Here are some of the most awesome points.

A fabulous opening plenary on Computer Science for All, with Quincy Brown, Gail Chapman, Deborah Kariuki, and Carol Fletcher. Good conversation and great audience questions.
