Take part in the next step of our research project on the use of design in programming projects. We will introduce our findings so far, present a set of models to help you introduce design and help you work out what next. This is part of our research programme and you will be part of a focus group reviewing the new framework. The session will include ideas for you to take back to the classrooom.
