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

  • 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
