UpCERG - Uppsala Computing Education Research Group
What is Computing Education Research?
The research within computing education is aimed towards the study, the development, and the improvement of undergraduate education in computing and related fields through the use of rigorous research methods.
The goals are pragmatic: The students' learning of computing should become enhanced, their interest in the area encouraged, their study habits improved, the recruitment and the retention increased, as well as us becoming better at composing education programs.
