  • Börstler, Jurgen; Hall, Mark; Nordström, Marie; Paterson, James; Sanders, Kate; Schulte, Carsten; Thomas, Lynda (2009-12-01)
    Research shows that examples play an important role for cognitive skill acquisition. Students as well as teachers rank examples as important resources for learning to program. Therefore examples must be consistent with the ...

  • McCartney, R.; Zander, C.; Sanders, K.; Thomas, Lynda; Mostrum, J.; Eckerdal, Anna (2007-09)
    This paper is part of an ongoing series of projects in which we are investigating 'threshold concepts': concepts that, among other things, transforms the way a student looks as the discipline and are often troublesome to ...

  • Thomasson, Benjamin Jason Tom; Thomas, Lynda; Ratcliffe, Mark Bartley (2006)
    We report on a study of novice programmers’ object oriented class designs. These designs were analysed to discover what faults could be discovered. The two most common faults related to non-referenced classes (inability ...
  • Thomas, Lynda; Woodbury, John; Jarman, E.; Ratcliffe, Mark (2002-03)
    This paper reports on the implication of different preferred learning styles on students' performance in the introductory programming sequence and on work in progress on how to accommodate these different styles.Students ...

  • Hanks, Brian; Zander, Carol; Thomas, Lynda; Simon, Beth; Fitzgerald, Sue; Murphy, Laurie; McCauley, Renee (2009-07)
    We present what students say about their preferred learning style to succeed in introductory programming. Using the Felder-Silverman learning styles, students contrasted the 'best' learning style for programming with the ...

    'Threshold concepts' are concepts that, among other things, transform the way a student looks at a discipline. Although the term 'threshold' might suggest that the transformation occurs at a specific point in time, an 'aha' ...

    Jane sees 50 compiler errors as a challenge. John sees them as defeat. Psychology research suggests these contrasting reactions may stem from students' self-theories, or their beliefs about themselves. Jane's reaction is ...
