Hubs

The CAS York Regional Centre is committed to supporting the development of Hubs in the region.  On this page you can find the following:

What’s a Hub?

Hubs are events that are organised by Master Teachers or other working members of the CAS community that give an opportunity for teachers in a local area to come together and share experiences in teaching computing.  Hubs provide a great opportunity to do bite-sized professional development, meet and develop networks of computing in the local area, and can be quite fun too!

Can I start a Hub?

Absolutely!  If you are interested in starting a Hub in your local area, then no need to wait!  Let us know that you are starting up a new Hub and we can help you advertise.

What do I need to start a Hub?

You will need someone who is passionate about Computing At Schools to organise the Hub event and a venue where it can be hosted for 1-2 hours.  We can help you advertise through Eventbrite or mailing lists, or you can use your local contacts.

Most Hubs have schedules of activities that are run by the organiser(s) that help other teachers learn about different ways to design, teach and assess their students.  If that sounds like a lot of work, don’t worry!  We’ve put together Hub Packs for you to get you started.
