The 2015 Computing Science Education conference will be hosted by the School of Computing at the University of Dundee on Saturday 7th November 2015.
Peter Donaldson, Kate Farrell and Ross Gibson of Computing at School Scotland say….
‘After the ‘slimline’ conference last year we will be back to our multiple strands plus workshops model that has worked well in the past. Following on from our successful BGE strand last year and the positive feedback we got from the Primary teachers attending we are carrying on with the BGE strand and expanding it so there will be BGE sessions for the full day.
We are also very pleased to announce that we are partnering with SICSA Education to have an Academic and Research strand, and we’re partnering with College Development Network and ScotlandIS to have an Industry and Vocational Strand.
This will mean professionals from Early Years, Primary, Secondary, Further Education, Higher Education and Industry all gathering together to discuss Computing Science education!
In order to make this conference a huge success we need you and professionals within your authority.We are opening a Call for Proposals and we are hoping that many of you will submit proposals for sessions at the conference. There are a selection of themes to give you ideas.
