  1. 1. Computer Science Project Courses Contrasting Students’ Experiences with Teachers’ Expectations

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mattias Wiggberg; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; computer science education; computer science student projects; computer science projects; computer science education research; phenomenography; learning; higher education; communities of practice; capstone projects; constructivism; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot datavetenskapens didaktik; Computer Science with specialization in Computer Science Education Research;

    Abstract : Including small or large project courses is widely recognized as important in preparing computer science students for a professional career. Typical examples are the capstone courses, which often are seen as the jewel in the crown since this is where students will bring their previous knowledge and skills together to show mastery of their craft.

  2. 2. Developing and Assessing Professional Competencies: a Pipe Dream? Experiences from an Open-Ended Group Project Learning Environment

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mats Daniels; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Computing education research; engineering education research; computer science; open-ended group project; professional competencies; action research; educational research framework; learning; communities of practice; constructivism; conceptual change; threshold concepts; problem based learning; ill-structured problem solving; international student collaboration; constructive controversy; reflection; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot datavetenskapens didaktik; Computer Science with specialization in Computer Science Education Research;

    Abstract : Professional competencies are explicitly identified in the primary learning outcomes for science and engineering degrees at many tertiary institutions.  Fulfillment of the requirements to equip our students with these skills, while formally acknowledged as important by all stakeholders, can be hard to demonstrate in practice.

  3. 3. Learning Computing at University: Participation and Identity A Longitudinal Study

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anne-Kathrin Peters; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; computing education research; engineering education research; computer science; higher education; engagement; diversity; equity; gender; competencies; culture; longitudinal; identity; participation; power; agency; uniformity; communities of practice; social theory of learning; phenomenography; student reflections; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot datavetenskapens didaktik; Computer Science with specialization in Computer Science Education Research;

    Abstract : Computing education has struggled with student engagement and diversity in the student population for a long time. Research in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education suggests that taking a social, long-term perspective on learning is a fruitful approach to resolving some of these persistent challenges.

  4. 4. Novice Programming Students' Learning of Concepts and Practise

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna Eckerdal; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Computer science education; computer science education research; object-oriented programming; novice students; phenomenography; variation theory; dimensions of variation; learning; higher education; concepts; practise; Ways of Thinking and Practising; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot datavetenskapens didaktik; Computer Science with specialization in Computer Science Education Research;

    Abstract : Computer programming is a core area in computer science education that involves practical as well as conceptual learning goals. The literature in programming education reports however that novice students have great problems in their learning. These problems apply to concepts as well as to practise. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the Road to a Software Profession Students’ Experiences of Concepts and Thresholds

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jonas Boustedt; Högskolan i Gävle.; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Biographies; class diagram; computer science education; computer science education research; computing concepts; concept map; content analysis; higher education; java interface; learning; object orientation; phenomenography; programming; role-play; software development; software profession; threshold concepts; variation theory; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot datavetenskapens didaktik; Computer Science with specialization in Computer Science Education Research;

    Abstract : Research has shown that there are gaps in knowledge between newly hired and experienced professionals and that some of these gaps are related to concepts, such as the concepts of object orientation. This problem, and the fact that most computer science majors want to work in the software industry, leads to questions regarding why these gaps exist and how students can be better prepared for their future careers.
