Published: 17 February 2020

TIME: 13:00-14:00
LOCATION: Sir Alwyn Williams Building, Seminar Room 422

The arts (music and visual) have always provided a less-travelled but fascinating alternate route into computing. As CS Schools around the world grapple with how best to teach computing to the next generation(s), is computer music/visual art part of the solution? If so, how can we do it without introducing more baggage to a curriculum which already throws plenty of other “hidden prerequisite” hurdles in front of newcomers? In posing (and probably not answering!) these questions Ben will reflect on 10 years of art+code as both an educator and creative practitioner, and describe the c/c/c studio: his current “Reimagine Fellowship” project to bring creative coding into Australian schools.
