Akdur, Deniz – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2023
Many practitioners might struggle with becoming productive in different software engineering (SE) roles due to misalignment of the skills learnt during the university time with what is expected in the industry. Companies spend significant resources to train the personnel, whose academic backgrounds are not only based on "computing…

Kutay, Emine; Oner, Diler – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2022
The purpose of this study is to examine the role of Minecraft-based coding activities on computational thinking (CT) of middle school students. In the study, CT was conceptualized so that it encapsulates not only the knowledge of computational concepts (e.g., loops and conditionals) but also the use of CT practices (e.g., testing and debugging).…

Steghöfer, Jan-Philipp; Burden, Håkan; Hebig, Regina; Calikli, Gul; Feldt, Robert; Hammouda, Imed; Horkoff, Jennifer; Knauss, Eric; Liebel, Grischa – ACM Transactions on Computing Education, 2018
Problem: The involvement of external stakeholders in capstone projects and project courses is desirable due to its potential positive effects on the students. Capstone projects particularly profit from the inclusion of an industrial partner to make the project relevant and help students acquire professional skills. In addition, an increasing push…
