  • Ratcliffe, Mark Bartley; Thomas, Lynda (2004)
    This paper describes a project that aims to enhance student learning of Object Oriented Programming through the development of an interactive learning environment. Through a series of connected experiments we have sought ...
  • Thomasson, Benjamin Jason Tom; Ellis, Wayne; Thomas, Lynda; Ratcliffe, Mark Bartley (2003)
    This paper describes a project being undertaken at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth that captures students’ designs in an attempt to improve the pedagogy. To enhance their understanding of object oriented programming, ...
  • Thomas, Lynda; Sanders, K. (2007-06)
    In this paper, we begin by considering object-oriented programming concepts and typical novice misconceptions as identified in the literature. We then present the results of a close examination of student programs, in an ...

  • Thomas, Lynda; Robertson, Ann; Ratcliffe, Mark (2003-01)
    This paper reports on how first-year students who have programmed before see their programming interest and ability and how this self-perception relates to their performance in the introductory programming course. In ...

  • 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; Murphy, L. (2008-06)
    Psychology studies have shown that students' beliefs about their own intelligence--whether they view intelligence as fixed or malleable-have an important influence on student development and achievement. Yet the impact of ...
