Description

Computing Education Research Centre

Launch Event

Drinks reception, followed by presentations in Bush House Lecture Theatre 1

You are warmly invited to the launch of the interdisciplinary Computing Education Research Centre at King's College London.

Why CERC?

Computing is now integral to all sectors of the economy and society, to all aspects of public and private life, and has become a core subject in the curriculum in England from age 5 -16. As yet minimal research exists on how and what to teach in school and studies of effective pedagogies in university computing courses have only recently began to emerge. There is an urgent need for high-quality research which can contribute to the development of new theoretical frameworks to inform our understanding of computing education across all age groups and sectors. This also needs to involve educators of students of all ages in order to have real impact in the classroom.

For more details about the new Centre, read this blog post.

We are delighted to launch a new research centre in computing education connecting expertise in education, computing, robotics, and related disciplines. Computing Education research is a new and emerging field, with a small but growing body of research - however the research potential is huge and the future very exciting!

We would be glad for you to join us on February 26th and to be able to share our plans with you.
