The Uppsala University Computing Education Research Group has to be one of the largest in the world at a single university. Their members include several prolific leaders in the field. They’re organization a new conference LaTICE 2013: Learning and Teaching in Computing and Engineering. “The aim of the Learning and Teaching in Computing and Engineering (LaTiCE) conference is to review and develop current practices and research now being done in computing and engineering education. The conference serves to facilitate introduction for potential partners and themes for future international collaboration and research in the field.”
UpCERG conducts research in Computing and Engineering Education, with a focus on student understanding and support for innovative curriculum development. UpCERG research areas include Globalisation and Culture, Student Conceptions and Ways of Understanding Computing, Learning Professional Skills, and Technology Supported Education.
Our research is driven by a desire to contribute to the body of Scholarship of Learning and Teaching that informs educational practice. The aim is to explore and develop undergraduate and graduate education in computing, and related fields, through the use of rigorous research methods. Research foci are chosen with a view to their potential impact on computing and engineering education.
