A free CPD workshop for A level teachers

Date: Tuesday 9th July (9:30-15:30)

Newcastle University is excited to announce a free teacher training event focused on object-oriented programming, held at the Urban Sciences Building in Newcastle. This the first of a new series events delivered by Newcastle University as part of the national Isaac Computer Science programme for A level teachers and students.

The training is for classroom teachers who either already teach computer science at AS/A level, or who want to improve their skills to start teaching A Level Computer Science in the future.

This workshop is a repeat of the session that took place on 31 January 2019 at the Raspberry Pi Foundation, Cambridge.

Topic: Object Oriented Programming

Equipment Required: You can work on our cluster machines and bring a USB stick to take away your work or bring your own laptop with a Python 3 IDE installed.

Experience Level: As this is a course for teaching computer science at AS/A Level, some experience of Python is needed.

Outcomes: You will create a working, teachable example to take back to your classroom that will allow you to explain and demonstrate the key
concepts of OOP including classes, objects, and inheritance.

This course includes a free sandwich lunch.
