“Transitioning Students in Introductory IT/CS Courses into Computer Science and Information Technology Degrees”

Community colleges have the opportunity to build their programs through recruiting students in introductory classes, such as Introduction to Computers, Microcomputer Applications, Introduction to Information Technology, Internet Introduction, etc. How do we get those students to consider Information Technology or Computer Science as a long-term career? How can we show students that the CS/IT field encompasses all disciplines from Accounting to Zoology? Come hear Ralph Hooper from the University of Alabama discuss strategies for creating a convincing case for Computer Science/Information Technology as a career.
