Education Champions

The SICSA Education Champions represent institutions across Scotland, with the aim to:

Scope out events and activities that can promote and complement existing efforts within individual institutions;

Raise awareness of activities within institutions which may interest the wider SICSA Education community (e.g. professorial lectures, learning and teaching conferences, upcoming studies, …);

Promote SICSA Education activities within institutions to ensure we are reaching the right audience.

“I would like for the Education Champions to do exactly what the title suggests – champion the wonderful CS Ed work done within each SICSA institution, and identify avenues for further opportunity, collaboration and support.“ – Dr Mark Zarb, Director of Education.
