CC2020: The Future of Computing Education This presentation will give a brief overview of the Computing Curricula 2020 (CC2020) project with a focus on competency.

CC2020 seeks to generate a modern revision of the well-known CC2005 document by reflecting a more current view of computing.

Further, CC2020 proposes a competency-based characterization of computing, as well as a bottom-up organization of computing into its sub-disciplines based on an analysis of competencies. Competency is the combination of knowledge, skill and disposition, all new computing curricula will be developed in this framework.

This presentation will describe why competency is important to all computing educators and why it has been adopted to develop future computing curricula.
