Teaching & Outreach

I have taught undergrad students studying computer science, applied computing, product design interaction design & computing at college. I also develop and deliver workshops for science festivals and conferences that place computing in a context that is relevant to the learner. This may be primary school pupils or teachers. I have also spoken at a range of events from cafe science, pecha kutcha and even tried my hand at stand up in an effort to share the relevance and importance of computing with as wide an audiences as possible.
