Past Teaching Activity

Python (and more!) for Teaching

In 2018, I have introduced (thanks to the hard work of Dr. J Kermode and Dr R. Maurer, amongst others) Jupyter Notebooks (a friendly interface to, in this case, the Python programming language) as a tool to both deliver and assess a fraction of my teaching materials. This is the very beginning of a large-scale effort to bring scientific computing into the chemistry, physics and enguneering curricula – as a start.

You can get a sense of what we are trying to achieve by having a look at our Notebooks, freely available on GitHub:
