computing education conference

Inaugural computing education conference hosted at Kent

The School of Computing hosted the first UK and Ireland computing education conference (UKICER) on 5 and 6 September. The intention is for this to become the first of a series of annual conferences to create a community of computing education research within the two countries.

Conference Chair Janet Carter said: ‘The atmosphere was relaxed and supportive with presenters talking on a range of themes including transitions to higher education, assessment, environments and context.’

The University also hosted the ACM-W Inspire 2019 workshop. The theme was “Rising Together” with exciting talks on supporting, mentoring and advocating women to achieve their full potential in both tech industry and academia.
