Abstract While the number of students interested in computer science is rising, the percentage of women and underrepresented minorities remains low. Many things influence whether a student will pursue a degree in computer science, but having a great experience in introductory courses is essential. The National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) has partnered with Google to create EngageCSEdu, a comprehensive and growing collection of instructional materials and pedagogical strategies for engaging and retaining undergraduate students in introductory computing courses. This article introduces the key features of EngageCSEdu and the peer-reviewed system for creating and growing the collection.
