Volunteer and Tutor
I studied computing science at University College Dublin in Ireland before moving to the University of Glasgow to do postgraduate research in Computer Animation. In order to fund my postgraduate studies, I tutored undergraduate courses alongside research. After a career break to raise five children, I returned to UofG as a full-time tutor five years ago. My interests are now in Computer Science Education. I am particularly concerned with what we teach our students and what methods we use to achieve this. I am currently undergoing a PhD in the area.
I am delighted to be given the opportunity to design a beginner's course in Python programming. I am looking forward to delivering this training and I hope that teaching programming to non-computer science students will deepen my understanding of how to explain the basic computing concepts.
