The WRD Fall Speaker will be Annette Vee from the University of Pittsburgh. The event will be held Tuesday Oct. 13, from 4:20-5:50 in the Scholar’s Lab on the first floor of the Richardson Library. She will be giving a talk called, “Coding for everyone: What does it mean to call computer programming a ‘literacy’?”
Unlike traditional evening speaker events, this will be mixed format event with the aim to create a dynamic discussion atmosphere. Annette will talk for 45 minutes, followed by a Q and A and then small group discussion (the room is set up for table topics) and/or a short and accessible collaborative digital activity using the Scholar’s Lab unique set-up.
