  • Ratcliffe, Mark; Moström, Jan Erik; Eckerdal, Anna; McCartney, Robert; Zander, Carol (2006)
    This paper examines software designs produced by students nearing completion of their Computer Science degrees. The results of this multi-national, multi-institutional experiment present some interesting implications for ...
  • Eckerdal, Anna; Ratcliffe, Mark; McCartney, Robert; Moström, Jan Erik; Zander, Carol (2005)
    This paper examines the problem of studying and comparing student software designs. We propose semantic categorization as a way to organize widely varying data items. We describe how this was used to organize a particular ...
  • Thomas, Lynda; McCartney, Robert; Mostrom, Jan Eric; Boustedt, Jonas; Eckerdal, Anna; Zander, Carol; Sanders, Kate (2009-07)
    We examine the transformations experienced by students during their study of computing. These transformations led to changes in the students' perceptions of computer science, in their sense of identity as computer scientists, ...
  • Thomas, Lynda; Mostrom, Jan Erik; Sanders, Kate; Zander, Carol; Eckerdal, Anna; McCartney, Robert (2011-07-15)
    In this paper we present background and early results from an investigation of how computing students learn computer science topics through informal means, that is, outside of organized classes. We provide some overall ...
  • Boustedt, Jonas; Zander, Carol; Mostrom, Jan Eric; McCartney, Robert; Sanders, Kate; Thomas, Lynda; Eckerdal, Anna (2008-09-07)
    This paper examines transformational learning experiences of computing students as a way to better understand threshold concepts in computing. From empirical evidence we found that students often describe transformative ...

    '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' ...
  • Eckerdal, Anna; Ratcliffe, Mark; Sanders, Kate; Moström, Jan Erik; Zander, Carol; McCartney, Robert (2006)
    This paper describes Threshold Concepts, a theory of learning that distinguishes core concepts whose characteristics can make them troublesome in learning. With an eye to applying this theory in computer science, we consider ...
  • Thomas, Lynda; Zander, Carol; Boustedt, Jonas; Mostrom, Jan Eric; Sanders, Kate; McCartney, Robert (2009-08)
    We examine the changes in the ways computing students view their field as they learn, as reported by the students themselves in short written biographies. In many ways, these changes result in students thinking and acting ...
  • Eckerdal, Anna; Sanders, Kate; Boustedt, Jonas; Thomas, Lynda; McCartney, Robert (2011-11-23)
    Research has shown that most learning in the workplace takes place outside of formal training and, given the swiftly changing nature of the field, computer science graduates more than most workers, need to be able to learn ...
