I’ve started planning for the next Teesside CAS Hub Meeting and following the last one, which was really an introduction for local teachers, I wanted to go down a more pro-active and supportive route.
My initial plan was to have a number of short workshops on a variety of topics, but then I saw that Alan O’Donahoe was planning a meeting all about Python (http://caspreston.eventbrite.co.uk/), having run the previous one on Scratch and it got me to thinking about what model would work best.
I ran a quick survey after the last meeting and the consensus was that short-medium sessions of 30 minutes – 1 hour were preferable, rather than 2 hours on one topic, and I have a responsibility to respond to that of course. I can’t help but wonder, though, if a longer session on a smaller topic might be more productive in the end…
I’d be interested to hear the thoughts of others about their experiences of attending or running either long or short Computing CPD sessions.
