Episode/Interview “techshelikes” Podcast

Have you heard the latest techshelikes podcast episode with Bernadette Spieler? I’m particularly excited about this episode because Bernadette and I have one thing in common: We both work in computer science didactics. In the conversation, Bernadette talks about what computer science education is all about and how she lives her vision of “supporting children” as a software developer and eventually as a computer science educator, setting a good example for a job with purpose and impact in computer science.

3 Computer Science Professors – 3 questions

In 2021, the year in which Switzerland celebrates the 50th anniversary of women’s right to vote, positive effects towards more gender equality can be seen on many levels. The PHs play a key role with the training of future teachers. The Swiss Association for Computer Science in Education SV!A presents three female computer science professors at once:

Dorit Assaf, PH FHNW , Mareen Grillenberger, PHSZ, and Bernadette Spieler, PHZH.

The DIZH-projects aims to promote cooperation between Zurich’s universities in the field of digitisation and to enable and drive innovative developments in the areas of teaching, education and digitisation, thereby strengthening Zurich as a location for research and business.

One of the 10 innovation projects is making@school, which aims to bring maker education to teacher training and education. In cooperation with University of Zurich/CreativeLab Zürich and the school office of the city of Zurich as a practical partner we will create different maker modules (basics, CS, bio-tinkering,…) as Open Educational Resources (OER).
