In examining how libraries promote computational thinking for children and young adults, the Libraries Ready to Code (RtC) researchers found a growing interest in offering coding activities in libraries that cultivate computational thinking skills, yet there is a vital need for more graduate-level courses to teach future librarians about designing and implementing these innovative programs. In this panel session, LIS educators, who are also Libraries RtC Phase II participants, will engage the audience in a discussion on transforming and expanding current course offerings for school and youth librarians to better prepare them to promote and develop computational thinking skills.
