Title: North of 300: Dealing with Significant Growth

Audience: Heads of Department and/or Heads of Teaching facing increased student numbers (not necessarily more than 300).

Purpose: to gather comparative evidence that colleagues may subsequently draw on, encourage ongoing networking, and build community.

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:

a) To share approaches to the problems of capacity, and coping strategies,

b) To share approaches to teaching at increasing scale. These may inform a subsequent report

Before the Event

  • One powerpoint slide that contains the top three problems you face with substantially increased undergraduate intake. No slide – no admittance.
