Computer Science Workshops for Secondary School Teachers


  • When? 12 March 2020 , 17:00-18:30
  • Where? University of Wolverhampton MI204 - Alan Turing Building, Wulfruna Street Wolverhampton WV1 1LY

This event is for all teachers teaching the Computer Science curriculum at AS and A Level.

Are you a computer science teacher? Do you feel that you might benefit from hands-on workshops on some of the challenging topics in the computer science curriculum?

If your answer is yes to both questions, we are providing workshops covering three areas:

a) Computer Programming

b) Data Structures and Algorithms

c) Database design and development

The first 3 sessions will be as follows:

Session 1: Computer programming - 27th February 2020

Variables – considering variables that store a single value and those that store a collection of values

Iteration –repetition using loops and recursion

Session 2: Computer programming - 5th March 2020

Selection – performing an action based on the evaluation of a condition

Data persistence – storage of data on disk using text files and CSV files

Session 3: Algorithms - 12th March 2020

Searching – considering linear search and binary search

Sorting - considering four foundational sorting algorithms

Analysing the efficiency of algorithms in terms of their running time

Please note:

This event will take place every Thursday from 5pm-6:30pm at the University of Wolverhampton, Alan Turing (MI) Building, Room MI204, City Campus, Wolverhampton WV1 1LY. (You also need to book a ticket for each week you wish to attend).
