Computing education research seminars at Vi3

The Vi3 computing education research seminar series is hosted by UpCERG, Uppsala Computing Education Research Group and mostly open to everybody interested. Join us online at https://uu-se.zoom.us/j/287192407 or IRL (room 104170).

Each Thursday at 13:15-14:45, seminars on computing education research related topics are given by internal and external speakers or open discussions among those attending. See schedule below.

The seminars are announced at the weekly internal Vi3 information meeting, and also on the Dept. of IT's newsletter läsit https://www.it.uu.se/lesit/.

Note that extra seminars may occasionally be held at other times than mentioned above.

Past seminars can be found here

2023-01-26 13:00-15:00 Hands-on WS on Biomimicry
Abstract: The objective of this workshop is to explore the method and process of biomimicry for human interaction design. First, we will create and discuss alternative possibilities for existing screen interactions (e.g., clicking, reading, selection, swiping) towards new ways of interaction in public space by translation of systems found in nature. Second, we will brainstorm and discuss what components of HCI could benefit from the method and process of biomimicry. The workshop will be of interest to participants who work, or plan to work with systems found in nature for interaction design or are curious about new methodologies for HCI in general. The specific outcome of the workshop includes a short paper or essay summarizing the outcomes of the activities and discussions. The workshop also foresees the establishment of a reading or working group that will continue collaboration on the theme of Biomimicry for HCI.

2023-01-19 13:15-14:45 Assessing Computational Thinking – Norwegian and Finnish teachers’ perspectives
Abstract: How do teachers assess Computational Thinking (CT) in Norway and Finland? In contrast to the US, where they have a CS subject, CT is in several Nordic and European countries integrated into existing subjects, such as mathematics and science. The introduction of CT into compulsory education in Norway and Finland requires that teachers adopt new ways of working with the subject they are teaching, and there are no detailed standards of how to assess CT in the two countries. In my research about teachers and CT assessment, I explore what understandings teachers have about CT and the assessment of it. When CT is introduced as a topic in subjects, such as mathematics and science, how does it align with the general aims of the subject teaching and assessment? What does it mean to assess CT in the context of a subject, such as mathematics? In my talk I will address these topics and present some findings from interviews with Norwegian and Finnish teachers.
