*AccessCSforAll* will be holding an *AP Computer Science Principles (CSP)*
Development for teachers of the blind and visually impaired. AP CSP helps
students understand how computing and technology influence the world around
them. AP CSP is intended to be taken by a wide range of high school
students. The *AccessCSforAll* AP CSP curriculum, based on the *Code.org*
<https://code.org/educate/csp> curriculum, will be the only accessible
version of CSP.  We are committed to bringing this course to students with
disabilities and examining its effectiveness.

Teachers from any subject are invited to apply. Participants will commit to
teaching AP CSP at their schools within two years and to provide (1)
information about enrollment in the course and (2) feedback on their
experience with the curriculum. *AccessCSforAll* will continue to provide
support during the academic year.

*Dates:* Monday, July 9 – Friday, July 13, 2018

*Location:* University of Texas in Austin, TX

This professional development event will be held at no charge to
participants. Travel expenses will be covered. In addition, participants
will receive a $500 stipend and a certificate of completion.
