East Midlands

Welcome to CAS Regional Centre East Midlands

Nottingham Trent University (NTU) has successfully led the Computing at School (CAS) East Midlands Hub for 5 years, pro-actively building membership and co-ordinating a range of successful events from full day conferences to twilight workshops, which are valued by a membership of over 600 primary and secondary teachers teachers.

Our commitment to computing and supporting the development of computing in schools is further reflected in our Initial Teacher Education courses for pre-service computing, and an innovative Masters course, MSc Computing in Education, aimed specifically at teachers. We have also delivered CAS Master Teacher training for the last 5 years.

In addition we have part-time PhD students who are researching into developing technologies such as ‘I think, therefore I compute’ An investigation into developing a pedagogical framework for computational thinking; and Adoption and Implementation of blended distance learning in higher education: a case study of the national university of Lesotho.

Our staff team who support the CAS CRC are active nationally in developing the computing curriculum and sit on various national committees such as Teaching Schools Technology Advisory Board, Expert Group, Education Technology Action Group and the Association for Information Technology in Teacher Education. We are also working with local schools on two European Horizon 2020 project: No-one Left Behind, with schools in the United Kingdom, Austria and Spain, developing gaming to enhance pupil’s computational proficiency, creativity and social skills; and MaTHiSiS: Managing Affective-learning THrough Intelligent atoms and Smart InteractionS.
