Dr. Dean Mohamedally
I am the Senior Teaching Fellow for Programming in the Software Systems Engineering group at University College London. We currently have just over 380 programming-centric students in the Department of Computer Science. I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and Member of the British Computing Society.
My academic speciality is in Constructionism and pedagogical learning theories within Computer Science education. My current focus is on software construction best practices in Software Engineering and the application of Computer Science in general education e.g. via current trends in Apps development and prototyping tools. I am examining a number of school-based learning mechanisms for problem based learning, constructionist reinforcement and student-learning techniques from algorithm approaches to larger solution modelling.
I lead on Apps development initiatives across CS degree courses and am the CS advisor to the Mobile App Strategy Working Group across all UCL faculties. I am a keen facilitator of technology transfer from all industries with the departments' research and education strengths and needs.
