Event description
Professor Andrew Luxton-Reilly's Inaugural Lecture

About this event

As computing devices have become ubiquitous, an understanding of computing is increasingly being viewed as a fundamental component of modern curriculum. This change in the perceived value of computing has coincided with rapid changes in the computing discipline, and rapid changes in education practices due to computing technology. Teaching in this dynamic environment is challenging. A scholarly approach to teaching and learning helps make sense of the complexity of education in a changing discipline using changing pedagogies. In this talk I discuss my own journey through computing education and reflect on teaching scholarship in a changing world.

Andrew Luxton-Reilly is a computing education researcher who focuses on introductory programming education and collaborative learning tools and techniques. He began at the University of Auckland as an undergraduate studying a BA then MA (Hons) in Philosophy, before joining the Computer Science department in a teaching role in 1995. He continued in a teaching role until 2012 when he completed a PhD in Computing Education. Andrew has chaired several international conferences, holds a position as an executive board member of the ACM Special Interest Group in Computer Science Education, and is the Associate Dean (Teaching and Learning) in the Faculty of Science.

Refreshments will be served in the basement level foyer (303-B00l2) at 17:30, prior to the lecture.
