New to teaching A-level computer science CY202
The step-up to A-level Computer Science is significant – for students and teachers alike. This course is aimed at teachers new or relatively new to teaching A-level Computer Science.
It will improve subject knowledge; provide experience in practical and investigative activities including a range of programming challenges; and deepen understanding of underlying concepts that flow from earlier stages of learning as well as those that appear for the first time at A-level. The course will help you, too, to develop strong mental models of computer science concepts with your students, providing them with a basis for better attainment.
Here's what last year's participants said:
"full explanation of procedural and object orientated programming. With useful resources that I will make use of in my lessons"
"I gained a greater understanding of data types and structures and how to implement the delivery of teaching of this topic to A-Level students"
"Session was excellent and covered in a very accessible way the topic of hierarchy and structural program design"
"presenter's A-level knowledge was excellent and he delivered a lot of useful and practical information"
"delivered in an enthusiastic way and with clear expertise."
This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course.
You will be able to:
- improve subject knowledge for teaching A-level computer science
- develop teaching and learning practice and pedagogy
- help students transition, building on previous learning and getting them up-to-speed
- learn about the tools and techniques available to use in the classroom
