Audience: Computing Studies Teachers
ICT Educators NSW has a strong tradition of supporting Computing Studies HSC teachers. To that end, HSC examination workshops have been a popular item on our Conference agenda. The workshops provide an opportunity for HSC teachers to review the 2014 examination questions, connect questions to syllabus content and outcomes and foster robust discussions of possible solutions. The aims for these popular sessions are to provide teachers a forum to discuss examinations, exam technique, and course content being examined for the purpose of equipping educators with knowledge in how to best support their Stage 6 students.
