(After a number of slow months with few posts, March looks a lot busier as I try to get back into the habit of keeping notes!)
The Higher Education Academy’s subject centre in Information and Computer Science is holding it’s 10th workshop on teaching programming at the end of March in Brighton. Details on the workshop here.
The afternoon of the workshop is heavily loaded with presentations related to the use of game based learning, and learning through game development – the final three presentations being:
Michaela Black – Successful Game Based Learning for Programming
Colin Price – Learning and Teaching Programming using the Unreal Tournament Game Engine
Kent McClymond – Teaching and Learning Programming Through Computer Games
Places are still available if you want to attend. I won’t be there, sadly, but I’ll be checking back after the 30th – the HEA ICS usually put presentation materials online.
