Since the purpose of the room is to offer guidance to users when they need it, and a scholastic environment theme is developing for our site, I suggest that we name this room the Guidance Office.

This is a list of questions that would benefit from LaTeX. This answer is community wiki, so feel free to add questions. If you think a question should be removed from the list, please leave a comment.

I don't see why “issues” would be inappropriate or misleading in this context. We do have issues. What we don't have is an issue with computer science education. I do agree that “issues with + noun” is weird here. I propose “specific issues related to computer science education” or “specific issues with teaching computer science”. Moderators can change this ...

"The Classroom" would fit well with "The Guidance Office" for the question help room.

group-work is potentially larger than group-assignments in scope while including it. I don't see the need to choose between assignments and other "work", such as in-class exercises and such, when tagging a question. The question itself can delineate the conditions between them. From an educational perspective I think the dynamics and results are sufficiently ...

As of this posting there are 34 questions on introductory-programming list. Having read them, and considered what can be done with them, I've compiled my thoughts for all of them. The main premise being that introductory-programming will die, and therefore, be removed from all of them. I've also identified the few, in my view, that might fit in the proposed ...

This concept was discussed in chat, and the conclusion that we came to is that intoductory-programming must die! We said that introductory programming must die because based on the name, it isn't clear what the tag is referring to. We agreed that the meaning of the tag should be for lessons introducing new concepts, and so the tag should be introductory-...

Do we actually have a consensus on why introductory-programming should be used on a question? It seems to be just used as a catch-all, when users can't think of a real tag to use on their question. If there's no real, consistent usage of the tag, it becomes meaningless (like the code-golf tag on PPCG, which is used on around 80% of questions; so the tag ...

These are ultimately both forms of assessment. Why not put everything under that tag? I would argue that merging everything into that tag would make for a more comprehensive database of related questions rather than splintering the two. Every exam is an assessment. While I wouldn't challenge this merging, I would suggest that we take it a step further.

This simply needs to be done. Other StackExchange areas have it. What is the obstacle?

When comments start to get a bit off topic, it might be a good idea to continue the discussion in Office Hours.

Second suggestions: The drawing board. It's nice because when something we discuss there doesn't work, we say "back to the drawing board". And the chat is where we sketch ideas (that sometimes become meta essays or well-organized collaborations). So we draw outlines on the drawing board and later discuss them in meta.

"The Quad" The quad is defined as: a quadrangle, as on a college campus. Dictionary.com It is typically a central location where people go to hang out or and/or discuss important issues. Events are held on the quad, and it's generally a central multi-purpose area.

I like the idea, but maybe it should be introductory-course to match with the idea which was voted up on the question about age range tags.
