Abstract

Computing has, for many years, been one of the least demographically diverse STEM fields, particularly in terms of women's participation [2] and those from minoritized racial and ethnic groups. In the case of higher education, one of the most powerful sites of intervention is the classroom. The last decade has seen a proliferation of research exploring new teaching techniques and course sequencing and their effect on the retention of students who have historically been excluded from computing. This research suggests interventions and practices that can affect the inclusiveness of the computer science classroom and potentially improve learning outcomes for all students. But research needs to be translated into practice, and practices need to be taken up in real classrooms. The goal of this working group (WG) is to conduct a systemic "state-of-the-art"review of recent empirical studies of teaching practices that have some explicit test of the impact on women (or other under-represented groups) in computing. The WG will produce an annotated bibliography and a report that distills the research into specific, actionable practices.
