  • Eckerdal, Anna; Zander, Carol; Thomas, Lynda (2011-07-15)
    Transformational biographies are used to shed light on situations when students have experienced 'surprise.' These biographies are examined in light of a philosophical position that surprise is useful in engendering learning, ...
  • 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 ...
  • McCartney, Robert; Boustedt, Jonas; Eckerdal, Anna; Moström, Jan Erik; Sanders, Kate; Thomas, Lynda; Zander, Carol (2009)
    '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' ...
  • Hanks, Brian; Fitzgerald, Sue; Murphy, Laurie; Thomas, Lynda; McCauley, Renee; Zander, Carol; Simon, Beth (2008)
    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 ...
  • Simon, B.; Thomas, Lynda; Fitzgerald, Sue (2005-10)
    How do beginning students approach problems which require them to read and understand code? We report on a Grounded Theory-based analysis of student transcripts from 12 institutions where students were asked to 'think ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Moström, J.; Thomas, Lynda; McCartney, R.; Boustedt, Jonas; Sanders, K.; Eckerdal, Anna (2008-03-15)
    In this paper, we present the results of an experiment in which we sought to elicit students' understanding of object-oriented (OO) concepts using concept maps. Our analysis confirmed earlier research indicating that ...
  • Zander, Carol; Thomas, Lynda; McCartney, Robert; Eckerdal, Anna; Mostrom, Jan Erik; Boustedt, Jonas; Sanders, Kate (Sense Publishers, 2010)
  • Kinnunen, P.; McCartney, R.; Thomas, Lynda; Murphy, L. (2007-09)
    In this paper we present a phenomenographic analysis of computer science instructors' perceptions of student success. The factors instructors believe influence student success fell into five categories which were related ...
