Implementing Scientific Programming in the Norwegian Curriculum
In this seminar, we share some of the work that is being done to prepare to teach programming as part Norwegian Math and Science Curriculum Redesign in 2020.
We would like to share the experiences of UiO faculty who have been leading professional development for teachers from throughout Norway, as well as the experiences of a number of teachers who are learning to program and teaching the subject to their math and science students.
We hope this seminar will provide an opportunity for teachers to collaborate and share best practices and the challenges that they face in the task ahead.

Who should attend
Teachers and department chairs from math and science disciplines interested in incorporating programming into their curricula are especially encouraged to attend. We think this seminar will be valuable for any educators who are interested in learning more about how teachers are preparing to incorporate programming into their curriculum as part of the curriculum realignment in 2020.
We have a visiting English speaking person, and the seminar will therefore be in English. However, it will be possible to comment in Norwegian.
