When I started off as a T.A. a few years ago, it quickly became apparent to me that I should probably start up some sort of website which I could use to deliver resources to my students. When I found out that I had free web hosting space through the University, I jumped on that and took the time to create what became a pretty functional and useful website. It served me nicely for a while but I was limited with where I could take it in terms of bringing further interaction. The main issue? I increasingly wanted to integrate a blog element and did not want to be bothered with creating my own blog mini-platform (though, the thought did cross my mind!). At the same time, I lacked the motivation to switch my website over to a more inviting platform… At least up until a friend of mine mentioned that she was moving her website to WordPress – I was then quickly sold to do the same and here we are!
Future Plans for this website?
- Continue to use it as a tool for disseminating information to the students I tutor
- Continue to use it as a way of building my professional identity online
- Build interactive learning material focused on web-development
- Blog regularly about topics of interest related to Computer Science and Education
That said, I would like to welcome you! Whether you are a student, educator, professional, or just someone with similar interests. Feel free to engage with me on the various blog posts that will eventually follow, share your thoughts, your ideas, and ask me questions.
