Informatik-Kolloquium WiSe1415

Diese Seite dient zur Koordination des Kolloquiums. Hier kann man feste, geplante oder auch nur angedachte Termine, Personen und Themen eintragen (und wenn es sich zerschlägt dann bitte auch wieder aus!)

Die Vorträge finden in unregelmäßigen Abständen in der Regel Freitags um 14:00 Uhr im Seminarraum 049 in der Takustr. 9 statt.

Vorläufige Terminreservierungen ohne Gastname sind als "(reserviert von [Einladende/r])" einzutragen; Termine noch ohne Gewähr als "(wahrscheinlich)" o.ä. zu markieren. Im Rumpf des Eintrags steht jeweils, wer den Vortrag organisiert. (Zur technischen Notation siehe ShortHand.)

Ab spätestens einen Tag vor dem Vortrag sollte auch eine Zusammenfassung dabeistehen.

Heike Eckart benachrichtigen, sodass sie die fertige Ankündigung ins CMS übertragen und an Email-Verteiler senden kann.

Information zum Anlegen von Kolloquiumseiten pro Semester findet man unter KolloWeitereInfos

Angabe des Einladenden bitte nicht vergessen.

Und wenn der Termin dann feststeht und die Zusammenfassung vorhanden ist, bitte einen entsprechenden Eintrag auf http://www.mi.fu-berlin.de/inf/dates/kolloquium/index.html ergänzen.

Titel: Preparing teachers is different than preparing software developers

ZIB-Hörsaal, 9:00-10:00

Zusammenfassung:

Preparing teachers to teach computing is more than a matter of re-purposing existing courses for computer science majors. The tasks, knowledge, and skills of a computing teacher in primary or secondary school are dramatically different than that of a software developer. Computing teachers need pedagogical content knowledge, which includes awareness of common misconceptions, methods for diagnosing those misconceptions, and interventions to help students develop more robust conceptions. The job of a software developer requires knowledge and skills that are irrelevant for a computing teacher. To meet the worldwide need for computing teachers, we must design new kinds of learning opportunities that address the requirements of teachers.

In this talk, I will present the findings from our studies of the best practices of successful computing teachers, and describe our efforts in finding new ways to support teacher learning about computing. We find that our most successful teachers read and comment code all the time, but almost never write code. The most successful teachers know the content, but also know the most common misconceptions for that content. We find that on-line learning is challenging for teachers to fit into their lives, but we can make learning opportunities that teachers will stick with if we emphasize activities that are lower-cognitive than just writing code on a blank sheet of paper.

Bio:

Mark Guzdial is a Professor in the College of Computing at Georgia Institute of Technology. He was the Director of Undergraduate Programs (including the BS in Computer Science, BS in Computational Media, and Minor in Computer Science) until October 2007. Mark is a member of the GVU Center. He received his Ph.D. in education and computer science (a joint degree) at the University of Michigan in 1993, where he developed Emile, an environment for high school science learners programming multimedia demonstrations and physics simulations. He was the original developer of the CoWeb (or Swiki), which has been a widely used Wiki engine in Universities around the world. He is the inventor of the Media Computation approach to learning introductory computing, which uses contextualized computing education to attract and retain students. He was vice-chair of the ACM Education Board, and still serves on the ACM Education Council, as well as on the ACM SIGCSE Board. He serves on the editorial boards of ACM Transacctions on Computing Education and Journal of the Learning Sciences. His blog on Computing Education is active, with 400-500 pageviews per day. He and his wife were awarded the 2010 ACM Karl V. Karlstrom Outstanding Educator Award. He was awarded the IEEE Computer Society Undergraduate Teaching Award in 2012.
