Our Mission

We are committed to being national leaders in computing educational research and practice that improves the experiences and outcomes of all students of computing at the university and beyond.

About the Center

The Center for Innovation in Computing Education and Outreach (CompEdCenter) was officially founded in early 2018. The main goals of the CompEdCenter are to bring together all of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) efforts, innovative course management tools, and the many years of experience of the UVA computing faculty to enhance our impact at UVA, in Virginia, and around the world.
