Call for papers: Curriculum Design and Pedagogical Issues in Computing Education

A special issue of International Journal of Education Economics and Development

Computing education is a challenging field due to high innovation levels resulting in a huge volume of literature with a relatively short lifecycle. Consequently, the computing faculty requires continuous involvement in research activities and syllabi updating. Furthermore, computing education requires extensive hands-on training sessions to enhance the skills of students in order to be successful in global job markets. Thus in the computing domain, traditional teaching methods are not optimal.

Advances in information and communication technologies have resulted in new forms of learning that require innovative pedagogical methodologies, curriculum and evaluation strategies. In this special issue, we focus on new approaches to pedagogy, curriculum design and evaluation strategies in relation to computing education.

The special issue invites the contributions with a special focus on computing discipline. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Best practices for computing teaching
  • Experience reports and case studies of teaching and learning computer science
  • Technology support in classroom environment for computing courses
  • Curriculum design for virtual computing courses
  • Computer based evaluation mechanisms in computing education
  • E Learning and computing education
  • Distance/virtual learning and implication for computing education
  • Role of multimedia learning system environments in computing education
  • Web 2.0 and computing education
  • Professional development of computing faculty
  • Computing education and digital divide
