  1. 1. Students working with a large software system : experiences and understandings

    Author : Jonas Boustedt; Michael Thuné; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Computer science; Datavetenskap; Subject didactics; Ämnesdidaktik; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot datavetenskapens didaktik; Computer Science with specialization in Computer Science Education Research;

    Abstract : This monograph describes an empirical study with the overall aim of producing insights about how students experience the subject Computer Science and its learning environments, particularly programming and software engineering.The research takes a start in the students' world, from their perspective, using their stories, and hence, we have chosen a phenomenographic approach for our research.

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

    Author : Jonas Boustedt; Michael Thuné; Roy Nilsson; Erkki Sutinen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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.

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

    Author : Mats Daniels; Arnold Pears; Michael Thuné; Steven Seidman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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.

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

    Author : Anna Eckerdal; Michael Thuné; Anders Berglund; Lauri Malmi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 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. Novice students' learning of object-oriented programming

    Author : Anna Eckerdal; Michael Thuné; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Datavetenskap med inriktning mot datavetenskapens didaktik; Computer Science with specialization in Computer Science Education Research;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates students' experiences of learning to program. Learning to program is a complex activity. It involves elements of learning abstract concepts as well as both learning and using advanced resources like computers and compilers. READ MORE
