Moskal, Adon Christian Michael; Wass, Rob – Computer Science Education, 2019
Background and Context: Encouraging undergraduate programming students to think more about their software development processes is challenging. Most programming courses focus on coding skill development and mastering programming language features; subsequently software development processes (e.g. planning, code commenting, and error debugging) are…

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,…

Sentance, Sue; Humphreys, Simon – Computer Science Education, 2018
Situated learning theory maintains that there is a relationship between learning and the social situation in which it occurs; learning is embedded in activity, context and culture. In terms of professional learning for teachers, this implies that effective learning takes place within a community where experts and novices meet and where practice is…

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…

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…

Burgueño, Loli; Vallecillo, Antonio; Gogolla, Martin – Computer Science Education, 2018
Models are expanding their use for many different purposes in the field of software engineering and, due to their importance, universities have started incorporating modeling courses into their programs. Being a relatively new discipline, teaching modeling concepts brings in new challenges. Our contribution in this paper is threefold. First, we…

Bonet, Nicolás; Garcés, Kelly; Casallas, Rubby; Correal, María Elsa; Wei, Ran – Computer Science Education, 2018
Bad smells affect maintainability and performance of model-to-model transformations. There are studies that define a set of transformation bad smells, and some of them propose techniques to recognize and--according to their complexity--fix them in a (semi)automated way. In academia it is necessary to make students aware of this subject and provide…

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…

Cutts, Quintin; Robertson, Judy; Donaldson, Peter; O'Donnell, Laurie – Computer Science Education, 2017
This paper describes and evaluates aspects of a professional development programme for existing CS teachers in secondary schools (PLAN C) which was designed to support teachers at a time of substantial curricular change. The paper's particular focus is on the formation of a teacher professional development network across several hundred teachers…

Wong, Billy – Computer Science Education, 2017
Computers and information technology are fast becoming a part of young people's everyday life. However, there remains a difference between the majority who can use computers and the minority who are computer scientists or professionals. Drawing on 32 semi-structured interviews with digitally skilled young people (aged 13-19), we explore their…

Ben-David Kolikant, Yifat; Genut, Sara – Computer Science Education, 2017
In line with the growing interest in extending the diversity of CS students, we examined the performance of a unique group of students studying an introductory course in Digital logic: ultraorthodox Jewish men, whose previous education was based mostly on studying Talmud and who lacked a conventional high-school education. We used questions from…

Maguire, Phil; Maguire, Rebecca; Kelly, Robert – Computer Science Education, 2017
We report on an intervention in which informal programming labs were switched to a weekly machine-evaluated test for a second year Data Structures and Algorithms module. Using the online HackerRank system, we investigated whether greater constructive alignment between course content and the exam would result in lower failure rates. After…

Gal-Ezer, Judith; Trakhtenbrot, Mark – Computer Science Education, 2016
Reduction is one of the key techniques used for problem-solving in computer science. In particular, in the theory of computation and complexity (TCC), mapping and polynomial reductions are used for analysis of decidability and computational complexity of problems, including the core concept of NP-completeness. Reduction is a highly abstract…
