Education Research Showcase - Department of Computer Science and Technology

Thursday, 27 January 2022, 2.00pm to 3.30pm

An Education Research Showcase on 27 January 2022 will highlight some of the education projects we're undertaking – including building chatbots that can help people who are learning a second language, and looking at ways to make the teaching of computing more culturally responsive.

The event, comprising a series of lightning talks by early-career researchers in this Department, will also highlight the use of online platforms to support the teaching and learning of science at Secondary School.

Head of Department Professor Ann Copestake will introduce the event, and we will then hear talks on:

Building chatbots for second language learning: Gladys Tyen
Embedding the deliberate practice framework in a machine learning paradigm to improve learning outcomes: Dr Ahmed Zaidi
Online platforms for Physics teaching at upper Secondary School: Dr Andrea Franceschini
Culturally Responsive Computing Teaching: Dr Polly Card
