The Computer Science Education Research (CSER) group is interested in all aspects of CS Education including:
First Year Experience,
Large Group Teaching,
Novel Teaching Techniques,
Retention and Recruitment.
Our goal is to enable ourselves and other interested researchers to embrace and improve their educational research methods and raise expectations and understanding of the importance of this type of research within the greater computing community.
The Computer Science Education Research Group hold regular meetings where we design and discuss research projects related to current activities in CS education.
