England's only Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) in Computer Science. The Active Learning in Computing (ALiC) initiative seeks to facilitate a shift towards far higher levels of active student engagement where knowledge is obtained by sharing, problem-solving and creating, rather than by passive listening.
This level of active learner-engagement will be achieved through a stronger emphasis on group-work and individual project-work. The mechanisms for this include delivery of assessments and tools supporting active learning techniques; and revolutionising the learning environment to enable students to control the pace and style of their learning.
ALiC research team at Durham also formed the Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) research group. For more information our state of the art research and PhD opportunities, please visit the TEL research page.
CETL ALiC is a collaboration between Durham and other three UK institutions.
