Computing Science – support for new national Qualifications
Education Scotland organised and delivered a conference to support learning and teaching around the new Higher Computing Science on 29 May 2014. The main aims of the conference were to
- Examine a range of appropriate approaches to learning and teaching
- Exemplify a significant amount of new course content
- Continue to build a successful learning community for computing science
- Examine other areas for development to be addressed over the next academic year
Gerry Docherty, Chief Executive of Smarter Grid Solutions, who leads on the implementation of the ICT and Digital Technologies Skills Investment Plan was the keynote speaker. He did a tremendous job setting the scene for the conference and many of the issues he raised in the morning were discussed again in the closing plenary.
It was a really great day and gives us lots to build on. If you have any suggestions as to how Education Scotland can further support this area of the curriculum please contact email@example.com.
