Teaching Teachers How to Teach Computer Science

Free training opportunities in a variety of formats for educator members

Oracle Academy offers its educator members a variety of free training opportunities in a variety of formats to make learning convenient.

From teachers who have never taught computer science or Java and are interested in workshop level offerings to experienced computer science educators who want to refresh their skills using the tools and techniques employed in our courses, Oracle Academy can help.

Workshops

If you are an Individual member educator, you are welcome to attend training events for our Alice and Greenfoot Workshops.

Full Course Curriculum
