One of the good things to come out of this year’s CAS Scotland conference was the offer from Oracle to support the continuious professional development (CPD) of Scottish Computing Teacher’s.
We took up that offer and from the end of March till the middle of May, twenty-five Computing Teachers and Lecturers mainly from South Lanarkshire worked through their Java Fundamentals Programming Course. This course consisted of materials covering Alice, Greenfoot and Java using Eclipse and had two examinations a mid-term and final. Both counted towards course completion. Finally, there were two project days where we worked in teams to create a working game.
In due course i’ll embed that here!
We all really enjoyed it and are looking forward to a similar experience through one of Oracle’s other offerings.
