Innovations in teaching innovation

Tom Worthingon (ANU Research School of Computer Science and ACS Virtual College)

CSIRO ICT IR and friends

DATE: 2015-04-27
TIME: 16:00:00 - 17:00:00
LOCATION: CSIRO seminar room, S206, ANU Computer Science and Information Technology Building, North Road, Acton, ACT

Tom takes over teaching the Australian Computer Society's "New Technology Alignment" (NTA) postgraduate course from January 2015. This offered on-line directly by the ACS Virtual College and through Open Universities Australia. In late 2014 he attended a conference in Canada on computer science education and met with Canadian academics to discuss flexible learning and teaching innovation. Tom discusses how this might be done in Australia, by blending on-line formal courses with face-to-face competitions.
