The Cengage Computing Faculty Community is an online platform where computing instructors from across the country can come together to share thoughts, ask questions, and learn from one another. It’s a space to get your questions answered and pick up ideas from your fellow educators. The computing community is broken up into two sections – the community forum and the computing blog.
The forum allows anyone to post a topic, which could involve asking a question, sharing an article relevant to teaching within the computing discipline, or describing an activity that has worked well in the classroom. Members are able to respond and engage in conversations within each topic. Cengage staff often post topics as well, and interact with posts by answering questions and interjecting any relevant information.
The computing blog includes articles written by Cengage authors, instructors, and product specialists. Regular blog authors include Corinne Hoisington, Mark Ciampa, Ted Simpson, and Danielle Klahr. The articles cover a wide variety of topics to keep instructors up to date on new technology, cybersecurity issues, product updates, and instruction techniques. Anyone who visits the blog has the opportunity to ask questions of the authors and share thoughts, making this a valuable tool for instructors to stay current and informed.
