Teaching materials for CEOHP

To make this collection of interviews come alive for students, CEOHP has worked with a variety of educators to develop ideas for classroom activities, homework, and exam problems based on the interview materials.

We welcome suggestions of additions, either to these materials or of new activities to add to the list. We are striving to add the materials to a computer science education repository to provide a broader basis for the use of these materials. We will post more about this as the plan develops.

NOTE: These materials are currently still under review! We encourage feedback to help improve them.
