About Us

The CCI Center for Education Innovation (CEI) is established in the College of Computing and Informatics for the development and coordination of externally funded projects that incorporate strategies and new technologies for innovation in computing and informatics education. This Center builds on and extends the efforts of DITI and STARS, where DITI has a focus on increasing diversity in the students that choose computing as a career path and STARS establishes educational practices and programs that broaden the skills of computing students.

The Center for Education Innovation (CEI)  in the College of Computing and Informatics was established in 2013 to coordinate the development and study of innovations in pedagogy and technology in CS education. The CEI is a focus for the CCI mission in cultivating an inclusive culture dedicated to student success and equity in education. We represent and empower the faculty in their development of their teaching philosophy towards inclusion and meeting students where they are, enabling them to develop their computing professional identity through educational opportunities. The CEI is a collective for events, funding, and people that engage and promote new approaches to teaching and learning computer science.
