CS Tea: The Match: Managing Enrollment Inclusively
Enrollment in computer science has increased dramatically in recent years, straining capacities and leading to various strategies for managing enrollment. But some strategies increase student competition and may have disproportionate negative impacts on students from underrepresented groups. We believe success in computing education necessitates a more equitable approach to course enrollment. We designed "the Match" to encourage a liberal arts approach to course selection and attempt to broaden participation in computing. In this talk, we'll share a bit about why we instituted the Match and how it's worked so far.
