Happy New Year to all of you who have expressed interest in the Cyber Education Project (CEP).

The purpose of this message is to let you know about the CEP Learning Outcomes (LO) Workshop planned for 4 March 2015 at the Kansas City Marriott Downtown Hotel.  The goal of this workshop is to continue developing cyber science program learning outcomes based on prior works and preliminary LO Committee work conducted this month and next.

If you have not already signed up for the LO Committee and would like to get involved in LO development, please let Hoot or Beth know and we’ll add you to our LO Committee mailing list.  If you also would like to attend the LO Workshop, please let us know and consider making your travel and lodging arrangements soon.

At this point, the CEP does not have funding for workshop travel expenses although we do plan to provide lunch and light snacks to workshop participants.  The workshop will be the day before the SIGCSE 2015 conference begins.  If you plan to attend SIGCSE, we hope you will be able to add one day to your trip to participate in this workshop.  SIGCSE has reserved all rooms at the Marriott that week for $159/night plus tax.  Other hotels within a block from the Marriott include the Crowne Plaza Kansas City Downtown and the Holiday Inn Kansas City Downtown – Aladdin, both of which have rooms available at the US and state government rate of $106/night plus tax.
