This week we welcome visualisation wizard Scott Turner from the University of Northampton (UoN), and his colleague Gary Hill. Scott and Gary are going to get us thinking about how to teach problem solving.
Problem-solving and problem-based activities are, arguably, central to both Engineering and Computing, but they have an application across many subjects. This chat will consider how problem-solving skills are developed in various subjects, giving participants the opportunity to share experiences from different subjects and explore similarities and differences.
Dr Scott Turner @scottturneruon is Principal Lecturer in Widening Participation in the subject area of Computing at the University of Northampton (UoN) and regular collaborator with Gary Hill on research into problem-solving within Computing. Scott is also responsible for leading on research for the Computing subject at UoN.
Dr Gary Hill @DrGaryHill1 is the Subject Leader for Computing, Business Computing and Games at the UoN. Over the last twelve years he has published on problem-solving and project-based learning applied to computing and his PhD is within this area.
Here is a list of research outputs and activities
