1 What is Computing Education Research about? T /6500 Methods and results in Computing Education Research

2 Methods and results in Computing Education Research Following slides integrate two categories: Fincher & Petre (Fincher, S. and Petre, M. (2004). Computer Science Education Research. Routledge Falmer.) Pears et al. (Pears, A. Seidman, S. Eney, C., Kinnunen, P. and Malmi, L. (2005) Constructing a core literature for computing education research. ACM SIGCSE Bulletin, 37(4): )

3 Methods and results in Computing Education Research A) Studies in Teaching, Learning, and Assessment 1) Student understanding Students’ mental and conceptual models, perceptions, misconceptions Why students have trouble with something 3) Teaching methods e.g. How to advance learning by using some specific technique 4) Assessment Different types of assessment, validity of assessment

4 Methods and results in Computing Education Research B) Institutions and Educational Settings 6) Transferring professional practice into the classroom 8) Transferring from campus-based teaching to distance education Learning in ”non-traditional” settings 9) Recruitment and retention 10) Construction of the discipline Curricula construction, the nature of the discipline

5 Methods and results in Computing Education Research C) Problems and solutions 2) Animation, visualization and simulation Uses software and environments to affect student learning. 5) Educational technology e.g. tablet PC 7) Incorporating new developments and new technologies into the classroom D) CER as a discipline
