CPHC’s Learning Development Group is pleased to be supporting Computing Education Practice (CEP), a new UK Computing Education Conference, to be held in Durham in January. The deadline for abstracts is 31st October.
While there are conferences based in the US and around Europe, there is currently no regular UK-based event for HE computing education. CEP will provide an opportunity to discuss with like-minded people the challenges and opportunities that face us, and how these are changing. As well as a platform for presenting, exploring and sharing ideas and new approaches there will also be opportunities for focused discussion on the topics raised. Sally Fincher, Professor of Computing Education at Kent University, will give a keynote address to get the day started and Kay Hack, STEM lead from the HEA, will be starting the afternoon session.
Who is it for?
CEP is aimed at practitioners and researchers in computing education, both within Computing departments and elsewhere. The conference provides a platform to share and discuss issues, and how they apply to computing education.
How will the conference run?
CEP aims to be a community, not a series of proceedings; everybody is encouraged to participate even if they are not presenting. Throughout the day there will be presentation sessions, with discussion time at the end of each session.
