Teaching Computing – Free CPD from UEA

A few months ago I wrote about the brilliant Future Learn website (my original post can be found here). The site offers a range of short, FREE online university courses covering a wide variety of topics.

It was always my intention to sign up to one of them to see exactly what it’s like to study from home in this kind of way (I have never signed up to take part in a MOOC before).

So, I have signed up to complete the new Teaching Computing course, which begins on Monday 14 September 2015 and comes courtesy of the University of East Anglia.

The course is aimed at teachers who are expected to teach the new Computing curriculum in Key Stages 2 and 3, and lasts for six weeks (with a recommended study time of just two hours per week).

There are so many courses listed on Future Learn – from a variety of providers – that I hope taking this particular course might inspire me to delve into the basics of some other topics in the near future. We can but wait and see…
