Teaching agile - Dr Shirley Atkinson - Plymouth University
Dr Shirley Atkinson will respond to previous tweets about Universities not teaching students about agile with her candid - sometimes we do throw away the book - approach to learning and teaching delivery. She will share her passion for the applied approach of mixing theory and practical activity to ensure Plymouth University students graduate with clear employable skills. Teaching agile, engaging with industry and preparing students for the reality of working life requires good communication and interaction with the industry surrounding Plymouth and it's environs.
This workshop will also be a call to action. There will be the chance to discuss how industry mentors can help support students in their studies, how Plymouth University is not an academic ivory tower and different ways of helping students learn the skills that make them employable and effective immediately. Shirley is an academic at Plymouth University with a passion for ensuring industry relevant content is shared enthusiastically with students learning to become computing professionals. She came to academia late having worked in industry for 15 years as a software developer, business analyst and all round general IT dogsbody.
Shirley first graduated with a first class honours degree in Computing and Informatics prior to working for the NHS Information Authority as a Data Analyst. She returned to academia full time first completing her PhD in Internet Privacy before working on a number of Post-doctoral projects in E-Safety. She has been teaching Software Engineering related topics with a web focus part time since 2005 and full time since 2009.
During her time as a lecturer she has taught on the undergraduate project modules linking real projects to live clients, server side coding, exploration of cutting edge web technologies, e-commerce and work based learning. She has been programme manager for BSc (Hons) Web Applications Development and MSc Computer Science and subject group leader for the SOFT group - the group looking strategically at all Software Engineering topics for the computing degrees. She currently is programme manager for BSc (Hons) Computing and is leading the Computing At Schools (CAS) Regional Centre.
