Uppsala Computing Education Research Group, UpCERG, conducts research in learning and teaching that informs tertiary educational practice in Computing and Engineering Education Research.
The aims are two-fold:
- the theoretical focus is to gain insights in how computing can be understood and learned by students, how computing can be taught, and how to research these entities and the relation between them.
- the pragmatic focus is to enhance students' learning and academic teaching practice in computing and engineering
Currently funded projects address Globalisation and Culture, Student Conceptions and Ways of Understanding Computing, Learning Professional Skills, and Technology Supported Education.
