Calum, Expert Teacher

BSc Sound for Film, Television and Games, Southampton Solent University

I really enjoy coming up new ways to explain nebulous computer science concepts in a way that my students can understand easily. Everybody learns in different ways, and it is really satisfying when you find just the right analogy to make an idea click with a pupil!

I started coding back in 2009 while studying to become an audio engineer. It began as an elective on my undergrad degree and quickly became an obsession! I have always been interested in how the things around me worked, so when I was creating sound for film and video games it was only naturally that I wanted to learn how the digital tools I was using every day worked under the hood! One of the best things about coding is that there is always an awesome way that you can engage with the things that you are really passionate about through it. We live in a digital world and computers are everywhere, so matter where you end up in life or what you end up doing, you’ll always be glad that you know how to code! The more you know about the digital world, the better you can engage with it as a digital citizen.
