Mark Noone is a University Tutor in the department of Computer Science at Maynooth University since 2019. He holds a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science and Software Engineering. His work within the department involves the running of the Computer Science Centre, a supportive environment where students can get free one-on-one tuition in the modules they are struggling with, and managing first year modules as the first year teaching assistant. He is also monitoring the progress of the Leaving Certificate Computer Science curriculum.
He is working towards a PhD entitled "VisTex: An Investigation on the Role of Visual and Textual Languages when Learning to Program". This topic is focused on whether visual languages and textual languages provide differing outcomes for students at the early stages of their education, and whether some hybrid form of these languages could provide an alternative CS1 solution.
Mark's current research interests are in the areas of Computer Science Education, Programming Languages (visual, text-based, "hybrid"), curriculum development, support structures / methodologies for CS1 students and the gamification of Computer Science Education using "BreakoutEDU".
He is a member of the Computer Science Education Research Group.
