CEP – CS Academics – Queen Mary shares

1. Universities and Schools engagement survey

We know your time is precious but please help us find out about and improve how universities and schools work together. Working with the CPHC, IoC, BCS and Raspberry Pi we are conducting a survey on schools and university engagement.

If you run student ambassador modules, outreach or public engagement with schools please complete our survey. Here is the LINK  – https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SchoolUniversityLandscape

2. CS Early Academic Course

As part of our work with the Mayor of London, we are running free professional development courses for teachers, industry professionals and academics on computer science pedagogy. 

Our next course is in March 2021 and is for CS early academics, we don’t quite have the Eventbrite set up, but if you would like to be sent the link and more details about the course – for yourself or your colleagues to consider – please register interest HERE.  Here is the bitly too http://bit.ly/CSEarlyAcaInterest

3. CS Education Research Student Network

We have been running a CS Education Research Student Network Meeting for about a year, we meet once a month, the THIRD Wednesday of each month at 5pm to 6pm.

We are a very friendly bunch, we share our own research  journeys, trials and tribulations. We are a mixture of CS faculty and Education faculty students studying at a postgraduate level. This brings a great opportunity to share new perspectives. Each month someone shares, e.g. we have talked about theoretical frameworks, using online media for interviews, method in general and many other things.

The link for the meeting is posted on the CAS Research Facebook page LINK.

4. CS Education Research Book Club

Every first Thursday of the month we run a CS Education Research Book Club  (#CSEdResearchBookClub on Twitter) at 7:30 to 8:30. This is a very informal group, we decide what papers to read and take it in turns to present. Sometimes we manage to get the author to present. The link for the meeting is posted on CAS Research Facebook page LINK.
