This hands on workshop will examine the similarities and differences between Alice 2 and Alice 3, and together we will think about how an Alice 2 based course can be taught using Alice 3. This workshop assumes participants have some familiarity with Alice2, may have attended an Alice2 workshop at Duke or one of the South Carolina sites.
