Liz Burd

University of Newcastle
Pro-vice Chancellor
Newcastle. Australia
I work at the interface between computer science and education having held personal chairs in both disciplines. I have played a leading role in furthering Computing pedagogy in wide range of ways. In December 2004 I was the author of Durham’s only successfully funded CETL (ALiC: Active Learning in Computing) for which I then acted as its director. As part of this role I have made over 50 presentations and keynotes at national or international levels to disseminate outcomes of our pedagogic research. More recently, I gained funding from the EPSRC/ESRC’s Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP) to that value of £1.5 million to continue aspects of the CETL’s work on learning spaces. I have used my degrees in education and computing to build a significant reputation in the field of Technology Enhanced Learning. In the last four years, I have built a research group of around 15 staff and research students and in recognition of this achievement have been awarded a personal chair in Computer Science and more recently a chair in Education.
