A Rough Guide to topics in CS Education Research

BRACE (Building Research in Australasian Computing Education)

First Workshop, Dunedin, 23-26 January 2004


Cs education research topics a matter of motivation

CS Education Research Topics:a matter of motivation

  • Student understanding

  • Animation/Visualisation/Simulation

  • Teaching methods

  • Assessment

  • Educational technology

  • Transferring professional practice to the classroom

  • Incorporating new developments & new technologies

  • Transferring to remote teaching

  • Recruitment/retention

  • Construction of the discipline


Student understanding

Student understanding

  • Learner-centred. Often concerned with:

    • eliciting models & misconceptions

    • teaching difficult concepts

    • order of concept acquisition

  • Can be “broad” – design behaviours, programming languages, programming paradigms or “specific” - recursion


Animation visualisaton simulation

Animation/Visualisaton/Simulation

  • Environments & tools for explication, exploration and construction of understanding

    • Algorithm animation (Stasko)

    • Program visualisation (Jeliot, TeaCUP, BlueJ)

    • Mindstorms (Papert, Stein)


Teaching methods

Teaching methods

  • Bridging, sense-making, dynamics of teaching interaction

    • Soloway, Linn & Clancy

    • Active learning/constructionism/constructivism/learning styles

    • Tony Jenkins

  • Classroom methods

    • Programming labs

    • Project work (EPCoS)


4 assessment

4.Assessment

  • Types, validity, automated grading

    • Bloom

  • Plagiarism

    • Culwin, Dick, Duley

  • Classroom assessment


5 educational technology

5. Educational technology

  • Presentational systems

    • Smart classrooms. Smart whiteboards (Ideogramic)

    • Pebbles

  • Electronic assignment handling

    • lms

  • Electronic exams


6 transferring professional practice to the classroom

6.Transferring professional practice to the classroom

  • Software engineering models

    • SWEBOK, CSEE&T conference

  • PSP

    • Watts-Humphreys

  • XP – pair programming

    • Martin Fowler, Laurie Williams


7 incorporating new developments and new technologies

7.Incorporating new developments and new technologies

  • OO

  • Java

9.Recruitment/retention

  • Diversity

  • Gender


10 construction of the discipline

10.Construction of the discipline

  • Curriculum issues (implementation of CC2001)

  • Is CS engineering? maths? business? (Martyn Clark)
