Birkbeck Excellence in Teaching Award for Sergio Gutierrez-Santos

Jun 8, 2017


Sergio Gutierrez-Santos, Senior Lecturer at the Birkbeck Knowledge Lab, has won the Birkbeck Excellence in Teaching Award for his innovations aimed at empowering and developing the autonomy of students' programming. Dr. Gutierrez-Santos says: 'My students do not spend much time in the class listening to me talking, they do that online at home. When they come to the class, they come to work like software engineers do; and I am there to support them as they evolve from programming novices solving easy tasks to competent programmers who can tackle problems taken directly from the real world'.
