This is a call for papers for an upcoming special issue of Computing in Science & Engineering to be published in March/April 2020. This special issue invites outstanding authors to extend their broadening participation research work presented at RESPECT 2019, the fourth annual conference on Research on Equity and Sustained Participation in Engineering, Computing, and Technology. Our 2019 theme of Partnering for Inclusion and Equity focused on building partnerships to engage all people in learning computing. Overall, RESPECT 2019 papers examined barriers to equity and inclusion that impact the representation of women, people of color, and people with disabilities across the entire CS education and workforce pipeline; proposed and evaluated interventions to promote inclusive pedagogy in computer science classrooms; investigated K-12 teacher preparation; and described approaches to making equity and inclusion a first principle for CS education strategies at the school and state levels.
In this special issue of CiSE, we invite you to submit papers to extend broadening participation research work presented at RESPECT 2019.
- Barriers to equity and inclusion;
- Interventions to promote inclusive pedagogy in computer science classrooms;
- K-12 teacher preparation;
- Approaches to making equity and inclusion a first principle for CS education.
Please submit electronically to Scholar One Manuscripts by 01 July 2019, selecting the special-issue option “Best of RESPECT.”
When preparing your manuscript, please see the CiSE-specific author guidelines and the general author guidelines. Manuscripts should not exceed 7,200 words—including all main body, abstract, keyword, bibliography, biography, and table text—and 20 references. Each table and figure counts for 300 words. Articles should be understandable by a broad audience of computer science and engineering professionals, avoiding a focus on theory, mathematics, jargon, and abstract concepts. Accepted papers will be lightly edited for grammar and formatting.
