Teaching Object-Oriented Programming to Secondary Students – It is not just about pronouncing it correctly!

A Lecture / Talk

Object-oriented programming will be included for the first time in Year 12 ATAR Computer Science in 2024.

Most teachers will not have studied this as part of their initial teacher education; therefore, this session will incorporate many facets from current research and evidence-based teaching practices to give recommendations on how to teach this topic effectively.
