Our work in Computer Science pedagogy looks at specific learning approaches or understanding of learning within Computer Science. This addresses issues such as understanding how students develop their mental models of the software development process, and the identification of self-regulated learning strategies that are specific to the Computer Science discipline. We also explore the fundamentals of computational thinking – and how we can better understand how to teach computational thinking as a process. This places an emphasis on the problem solving and problem construction process, over the technical details of programming itself.

Within this space, we also have an interest in some of the core issues that impact Computer Science as a discipline, one of which is equity concerns – why is it that female students tend to participate in low levels in our field? We are working to better understand this fundamental question, as well as exploring broader equity issues such as the inclusion of Indigenous Australians.
