We are running another of the popular “Chair in 10 Years” workshops, to
support and network early-career academics in Computing.
It will be held in Edinburgh on 24th May, led by Prof Simon Thompson
(University of Kent) and Prof Jane Hillston (Edinburgh University).
It is open to all, although you may want to note that we are intending
to run another workshop later in the year more closely aligned to those
looking for teaching-focussed promotion.
The full programme may be found here. Click here for the 2019 Conference page.
The 2019 CPHC/BCS Distinguished Dissertations competition is open. Details, including the submission instructions may be found here.
The 2019 CPHC Conference is due to be held on Monday 29th and Tuesday 30th April 2019 at Middlesex University, The Burroughs, Hendon , London NW4 4BT.

Cost: 50 pounds
To book: https://cphc-north-of-300-jan19.eventbrite.co.uk. The deadline for ticket sales is midday on Friday 18 January, but spaces are limited so early booking is recommended.
Schools of Computing are faced with ever-growing numbers of enrolments, from an increasingly diverse educational background (with/without prior computing qualifications). This brings challenges of capacity and teaching at scale, which in turn entrain issues of how to teach (traditional pedagogical models may not scale), of physical capacity (classroom spaces may be insufficient, digital infrastructure inadequate).
The aims of this workshop are:
- To share approaches to the problems of capacity, and coping strategies,
- To share approaches to teaching at increasing scale.
These may inform a subsequent report.
Before the Event
Participants must submit in advance (to firstname.lastname@example.org):
- One powerpoint slide that contains the top three problems you face with substantially increased undergraduate intake. No slide – no admittance!
