Excited Summer School on Research in computing education
In June 2019 the 1st Excited Summer School on Research in Computing Education, took place in Trondheim. PhD students, postdocs and young researchers from all countries to apply!
The school offered an arena for developing knowledge and skills in the area of computing education research, giving participants the opportunity to take part in learning sessions with international experts in the field, engage in discussions, and get hands-on experience with state-of-the-art tools and methods. The participants presented and discussed their work, getting feedback from experts and peers.
The topics included an overview of Computing Education as a research field with its history and politics. Computing Education research topics was cover on the individual level (e.g. adaptive learning tools; identity and employability), group level (e.g. student project teams – learning and assessment) and research on a larger scale (e.g. international Computing Education studies and learning analytics based on log data). We had an international group of lecturers. In addition to NTNU researchers, we welcomed Åsa Cajander, Professor at Uppsala University, Tom Crick , Professor of Digital Education & Policy at Swansea University, Mats Daniels, Professor at Uppsala University, Barbara Ericson, Associate Professor in Information at University of Michigan and Mark Guzdial, Professor in the College of Engineering at the University of Michigan.
The summer school can be joined as a seminar, or as a PhD course with 7,5 ECTS credits.
We have already started planning for next years Summer School. NTNU will be hosting the 25th annual conference on Innovation and Technology in Computer Science Education (ITiCSE) in Trondheim, 17-2o June 2020.
