Research

The Computer Science Education Research Group undertakes research into how we can improve the learning and teaching of Computer Science, ranging from primary through to tertiary education.

Our areas of research include Computer Science pedagogy, the use of technology to improve education, learning analytics and active learning methods within Computer Science classrooms.

We are particularly interested in how we can teach Computer Science or Computational Thinking from Foundation-6, including developing our understanding of appropriate pedagogy, and what we can learn about this new area from other, more established learning areas. If you are interested in forming a research collaboration or talking to us about our research, please contact us.

You can read more about our research at our CSER Research Blog.
