ITiCSE Subject Matter

ITiCSE subject matter

Papers presented at ITiCSE will normally address aspects of computing education, that is, the education of students who are studying computing. ITiCSE does not generally accept papers about applications of computing in other areas of education, such as the development of software to make it easier for online students to learn chemistry.

Within the domain of computing education, papers might cover specific educational subject matter, including but not limited to:

  • pedagogies for enhancing learning in CS subject areas, such as programming, database systems, physical computing or computer security,
  • leveraging data and analytics to improve learning,
  • innovative use of technologies,
  • approaches to peer learning and novel educational methods,
  • social and global challenges in computing education,
  • broadening participation and diversity involving engagement with specific groups of students, such as women, minorities, or school students,
  • developing, implementing, or evaluating computing programmes, curricula, and courses,
    scalable approaches to group work, or class infrastructure.

Types of paper accepted might include:

  • experience reports describing a classroom innovation and an assessment of its impact,
  • software reports describing tools developed for learning or assessment in computing,
  • research reports describing projects undertaken to investigate aspects of computing education,
  • papers describing beliefs or proposals for future work, although ITiCSE prefers to accept reports once the beliefs have been validated or the proposals implemented,
  • position papers articulating original and well-argued positions on innovative aspects of computing education.

The submission deadline for abstracts for papers is January 20th 2019 and the submission deadline for full papers and working groups is January 27th 2019.
