15 - Pedagogic Approaches

from Systemic Issues


The pedagogic approaches adopted within Computer Science education vary widely, both in terms of the adoption and adaptation of general pedagogic approaches and practices, and the development of pedagogic approaches that are specific to the Computer Science domain. In recent years, there has been an increasing focus on student-centred education approaches within Computer Science, as well as the adoption of technology-rich and technology-driven learning practice and environments. In this Chapter, we provide an brief survey of the development of common pedagogical approaches, and present an overview of the Computer Science scholarship and education research literature addressing the application of pedagogic approaches. We discuss exemplars and case studies of the use of these approaches within the Computer Science context, and the development of new approaches specific to our domain.
