Course Name:

Computing in the Classroom



Course Description

This course allows students to gain academic credit for their work in schools. Students will aim to develop a range of skills and to be presented with an opportunity to experience an early taste of teaching for those interested in pursuing teaching as a career. Students will spend one half-day per week for ten weeks in a school with a nominated teacher. They will observe sessions taught by their designated teacher and possibly other teachers. Later they will act somewhat in the role of a teaching assistant, by helping individual pupils who are having *difficulties or by working with small groups. Through this initiative, students will be able to inspire the younger generation of prospective computing undergraduates.
