Education Workshop: Post-Pandemic Computing Science Education.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to re-think how we deliver our teaching and assessment. And, while the circumstances that required us to adapt our practice were far from ideal, some of the resulting innovations in our methods have had a positive impact. In this session, we'll hear from colleagues about the new approaches to delivering CS education that have emerged during the pandemic and are here to stay, even as we recover from the impact of COVID-19.
Build Your Own: Bricolage for Blended Spaces
This workshop aims to advocate the benefits of methodological bricolage, where the researcher tailors tasks, tools, and approaches to understand the subject at hand. We will explore the creative process of reimagining the research frameworks, using the theory and practice of Blended Spaces. The workshop will specifically benefit those researchers, dealing with non-standard topics, where the current methodological frameworks are either insufficient or nonexistent.
