Yadav, Aman; Krist, Christina; Good, Jon; Caeli, Elisa Nadire – Computer Science Education, 2018
A number of efforts have focused on preparing teachers to integrate CT within secondary disciplinary subject areas; however, there is little research on how CT ideas could be embedded within elementary subjects. We designed a professional development activity for elementary teachers to embed CT within science and examined how their understanding…

Falkner, Katrina; Vivian, Rebecca; Williams, Sally-Ann – Computer Science Education, 2018
Computer Science (CS) curricula are being adopted worldwide. However, the lack of prior teaching training within this area means that we have an urgent need to provide teacher professional development. Best practice teacher professional development motivates us to construct interactive and sustainable models of professional development. However,…

Bares, William; Manaris, Bill; McCauley, Renée – Computer Science Education, 2018
Computing in the Arts (CITA) is an interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts degree program, which integrates computer science with art theory and practice. We present a 6-year study that explores the impact of the CITA degree on broadening participation. We find that CITA attracts a different student population than traditional computer science degrees.…

Ben-David Kolikant, Yifat; ma'ayan, Ze'ev – Computer Science Education, 2018
Higher-education students now have more alternatives for searching for information than previous generations had. The Internet is a vast ocean of information sources, albeit with diverse reliability and quality. In Web 2.0 platforms, any participant can be a content creator. This reality is challenging for both the instructors and the students. We…

Pantic, Katarina; Clarke-Midura, Jody; Poole, Frederick; Roller, Jared; Allan, Vicki – Computer Science Education, 2018
Stereotypes people hold about computer scientists contribute to underrepresentation in computer science. Perceptions of computer scientists have historically been linked to males and a "nerd" culture, which can lead to lack of interest, particularly for girls. This article presents two studies conducted with two groups of middle…

Palmer, Stuart; Coldwell-Neilson, Jo; Campbell, Malcolm – Computer Science Education, 2018
In Australia, the IT workforce and employment outcomes for university IT bachelor graduates have a complex interrelationship. The likelihood of IT bachelor graduates to work in a professional IT role is infrequently discussed in the research literature. It has been suggested that "deficient" undergraduate IT curricula are one contributor…

Berre, Arne J.; Huang, Shihong; Murad, Hani; Alibakhsh, Hanieh – Computer Science Education, 2018
This article presents the results of observations and analyses of students' learning model-driven system development from two related courses taught at a university in Norway and at a university in the United States in 2015, and consequently, in an updated version in 2016. The motivation of this article is to understand and analyse how effective…

West, Jason – Computer Science Education, 2018
Emerging careers in technology-focused fields such as data science coupled with necessary graduate outcomes mandate the need for a truly interdisciplinary pedagogical approach. However, the rapid pace of curriculum development in this field of inquiry has meant that curricula across universities has largely evolved in line with the internal…

Pon-Barry, Heather; Packard, Becky Wai-Ling; St. John, Audrey – Computer Science Education, 2017
A dilemma within computer science departments is developing sustainable ways to expand capacity within introductory computer science courses while remaining committed to inclusive practices. Training near-peer mentors for peer code review is one solution. This paper describes the preparation of near-peer mentors for their role, with a focus on…

Liu, Zhongxiu; Zhi, Rui; Hicks, Andrew; Barnes, Tiffany – Computer Science Education, 2017
Debugging is an over-looked component in K-12 computational thinking education. Few K-12 programming environments are designed to teach debugging, and most debugging research were conducted on college-aged students. In this paper, we presented debugging exercises to 6th-8th grade students and analyzed their problem solving behaviors in a…

Nielson, Seth James – Computer Science Education, 2017
Attempting to educate practitioners of computer security can be difficult if for no other reason than the breadth of knowledge required today. The security profession includes widely diverse subfields including cryptography, network architectures, programming, programming languages, design, coding practices, software testing, pattern recognition,…

Lehman, Kathleen J.; Sax, Linda J.; Zimmerman, Hilary B. – Computer Science Education, 2017
Despite the current growing popularity of the computer science (CS) major, women remain sorely underrepresented in the field, continuing to earn only 18% of bachelor's degrees. Understanding women's low rates of participation in CS is important given that the demand for individuals with CS training has grown sharply in recent years. Attracting and…
