Dr. Dean Mohamedally
I am the Senior Teaching Fellow for Programming and a member of both the Software Systems Engineering group and Advanced Teaching Group at the Department of Computer Science, University College London. We currently have just over 520 programming-centric students in the Department of Computer Science. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and Member of the British Computing Society.
I am also the Director for Apps Engineering for UCL's official App Strategy Working Group, across all UCL faculties. If other faculties want to contact me about project requirements they can get in touch. A role I keep close attention to in the Advanced Teaching Group is on Technology Transfer (primarily to syllabus and learning domains). Companies and research groups are welcome to contact me with regards to new technology platforms and deployment.
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.
