Tertiary Computer Science - Preparing Future Leaders?
Pearcey Conversations online seminar 26 August 2020 covered a vibrant discussion about how Australia's education system can meet the demands of our ever increasingly interconnected, heterogeneous, and computer reliant society.
As computers become more enmeshed in society, people of all ages need to increase computing literacy. Computer science (CS) has become foundational and the idea "CS+X" conveys that CS can help nearly any domain X to enable computing to solve complex problems and create new opportunities. CS is much more than programming and involves a range of computational thinking skills. How do we currently prepare students at university for the work they may undertake in the future? Are past experiences relevant in planning and presenting courses today? What are the opportunities for the future
