Teaching Computational Science

The Teaching Computational Science (WTCS 2024) Workshop will be held as part of the International Conference in Computational Science 2024 in Malaga, Spain.

The focus of this workshop will be innovations in teaching computational science in its various aspects (e.g. modeling and simulation, high-performance and large-data environments) at all levels and in all contexts. Typical topics include but are not restricted to, innovations in the following areas: course content, curriculum structure, methods of instruction, methods of assessment, tools to aid in teaching or learning, evaluations of alternative approaches, and non-academic training in computational sciences. These innovations may be in the context of formal courses or self- directed learning. They may involve, for example, introductory, service, or more advanced courses; specialist undergraduate or postgraduate topics; professional development; or industry-related short courses.

We welcome submissions directed at issues of current and local importance, as well as topics of international interest. Such topics may include transition from school to university, articulation between vocational and university education, quality management in teaching, development of needed HPC and other computational research skills, teaching people from other cultures, attracting and retaining female students, diversification of the workforce, and flexible learning.

The workshop will be chaired by Nia Alexandrova, STFC Hartree Centre.
