Denny, Paul; Cukierman, Diana; Luxton-Reilly, Andrew; Tempero, Ewan – Computer Science Education, 2012
Traditionally, learning resources are created by an instructor and distributed to their students. A contributing-student pedagogy (CSP) is one in which this responsibility shifts, placing students in control of creating the resources and sharing them with their peers. Technology plays a central role in supporting the collection and distribution of…
