Who this event is for

Computing teachers who would like to become a lead teacher for their area and support their colleagues in the first national programme of professional learning specifically for Computing Science.

Involvement in PLAN C as a lead teacher will give:-

  • you and your school professional recognition for supporting colleagues in your local area.

  • you regular lead teacher hub sessions with the core team and other lead teachers to apply the latest pedagogical content knowledge for CS to the senior phase qualifications.

  • access to summaries of the latest CS education research in a format that makes it easy to apply to your own practice.

  • a flexible set of National 4 & 5 appropriate materials and activities in year one of PLAN C and then for Higher in year two.

  • closer links with universities and colleges in your local area.

Aims for the launch day

  • Provide insight into the very latest research on how to teach novices programming more effectively and overcome common difficulties.

  • Allow you to directly experience and then explore a range of active learning techniques that can enhance your existing National 4 and 5 Computing Science courses.

  • Give you a range of materials that you can use with your Computing Science pupils to enhance their level of understanding in the software design and development unit.

  • Give you more information about being a lead teacher and the support you will receive.
