CPD courses on SQA Academy

For the last few years SQA Academy has run a set of CPD courses for lecturers in partnership with Scotland's Colleges. Some of these have focused on NQ subjects that are taught in colleges while others have been more general eg innovative uses of assessment or preparing for a verification visit.

They will be running joint courses again this year and I met with Fiona Saxby, one of SQA's Learning Technologists and Aileen Duffy from Scotland's Colleges to discuss new subjects the courses might focus on. As they are hoping to roll out to schools as well, I have suggested the NPAs in Computer Games Development at SCQF levels 4, 5 and 6 as I get lots of enquiries particularly from schools interested in offering this qualification but who feel they need more support regarding delivery.

It would be good to hear if you have suggestions as to what should be included in a course, from the perspectives of centres already running it or what areas of guidance you feel are required before you would consider running Computer Games Development.

There is only a short time frame to develop material so please respond to me as soon as possible.
