International Developments in Computer Education

Greetings from the opening of the 2014 IEEE International Conference on Computer Science and Education (ICCSE 2014) in Vancouver. It is a cool calm sunny Saturday morning on the beautiful UBC campus. The first keynote is Professor Saman Halgamuge from University of Melbourne on 'Near Unsupervised Learning in the era of Big Data: When does “Knowing a Little” can be useful?'. This is referring to machine learning and also the use of biological material interfaced to machines.

I will be introducing on of the note speakers at 11am, then presenting my own paper in the afternoon and on the panel "Curricula and Delivery of Engineering and IT Degrees in the Changing Internationalization Landscape of Higher Education" .
