    The Sino–Swedish Master Programme in Computer Science and Software Engineering: Chinese students' experiences2013In: Collaborative Academic Programs as a Contribution to Developing Nations: FICAP-1 Proceedings / [ed] Justine Hitchcock, Leo Hitchcock, Petteri Kaskenpalo, Boca Raton, Fl, USA: BrownWalker Press, 2013, p. 37-45Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Internationalisation in higher education has led to the emergence of joint educational programmes between universities. In this paper, we document the Sino-Swedish master programme in computer science and software engineering, taught jointly by a Swedish and a Chinese university, from the perspective of the Swedish partner, Uppsala University. We also describe what the programme means to the Chinese students studying in Sweden. For this purpose, we interviewed the Chinese students and asked questions about their experiences of learning and living in Sweden. The students identified the differences in the experiences in Sweden from that of learning and living in China and the challenges that they faced in Sweden. The students also offered recommendations for improving their learning experiences. We discuss the benefits and challenges of joint education programs.

    Students learn CS in different ways: Insights from an empirical study2006In: SIGCSE Bulletin inroads, ISSN 0097-8418, Vol. 38, no 3, p. 265-269Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This empirical study demonstrates that students’ learning of computer science takes place in qualitatively different ways. The results consists of categories, where each category describe a certain way, in which the students approach their learning. The paper demonstrates that some of the ways to tackle the learning are better than others in resulting in a good learning outcome, and that they therefore should be encouraged. The data, underlying these results, are collected through interviews with third and fourth year students in two countries, and are further analyzed, using a phenomenographic research approach.

    Reflections on trustworthiness in phenomenographic research: Recognising purpose, context and change in the process of research2009In: Education as Change, ISSN 1682-3206, Vol. 13, no 2, p. 339-355Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In interpretive research, trustworthiness has developed to become an important alternative for measuring the value of research and its effects, as well as leading the way of providing for rigour in the research process. The article develops the argument that trustworthiness plays an important role in not only effecting change in a research project’s original setting, but also that trustworthy research contributes toward building a body of knowledge that can play an important role in societal change. An essential aspect in the development of this trustworthiness is its relationship to context. To deal with the multiplicity of meanings of context, we distinguish between contexts at different levels of the research project: the domains of the researcher, the collective, and the individual participant. Furthermore, we argue that depending on the primary purpose associated with the collective learning potential, critical potential, or performative potential of phenomenographic research, developing trustworthiness may take different forms and is related to aspects of pedagogical legitimacy, social legitimacy, and epistemological legitimacy. Trustworthiness in phenomenographic research is further analysed by distinguishing between the internal horizon – the constitution of trustworthiness as it takes place within the research project – and the external horizon, which points to the impact of the phenomenographic project in the world mediated by trustworthiness.

    Five myths of assessment2004In: Australian Computer Science Communication, Vol. 26, no 5, p. 57-61Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes some issues concerning assessment and the corresponding motivation for students to work in a desired manner. The issues came from studying assessment in the Runestone project, but are, as we see them, of general interest. Our findings illustrate the need to not take the effects of assessment, nor what it measures, for granted. It is our intention to promote Computer Science Education research as an essential area for improving our education, in this case by exposing myths about assessment as myths.

    Reflections on International Projects in the Undergraduate CS Education1999In: Computer Science Education, Vol. 9, no 3, p. 256-267Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Educational methods race to keep pace with the opportunities afforded by technology, and in computer science we need methods that tie together the diverse aspects of the discipline and set them in a realistic human context. Projects have the potential to address various aims and perspectives, and international projects add new dimensions to student teamwork, requiring students to handle collaboration that is remote, cross-cultural, and linguistically challenging. This paper examines some of the educational issues associated with international projects, in the discussion of two examples: PASTICS and Runestone.

    Abstract [en]

    Projects have been used in many different forms in computer science education. This has lately also included running projects with participants from different countries. Pastics and Runestone are two international projects. A discussion of educational issues in relation to international projects is conducted with these two projects as examples. Using projects in courses are not without problems and some of the issues regarding coverage of “computer Science” are brought up.

    Building a Rigorous Research Agenda into Changes to Teaching1998In: ACM Australasian computing education conference, 1998, p. 203-209Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Building research into teaching has particular value in the current academic climate; this paper considers why and reflects on the particular need for Computer Science education research in its own right. Co-operation between research and teaching is needed in order to understand learning in the Computer Science context. The accelerating convergence of technologies for computing, communications and teaching affords an opportunity to integrate research and teaching objectives in Computer Science education. The paper presents four example projects in which research was tied to changes in teaching, so that general lessons could be drawn from individual experiences.

    Experiences of teachers in computing as role models: a phenomenographic study2017In: Proc. 17th International Conference on Computing Education Research: Koli Calling, New York: ACM Press, 2017, p. 133-137Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The literature on role models lacks a focus on understanding teachers' role modelling from the teachers' own perspective. Our tentative research question is "How do teachers in computing experience being role models for their students?". We use a phenomenographic approach to describe the teachers' experiences of role modelling and their own understanding of the term. Different understandings of role model are shown in a structure of categories, focusing on subject domain, perception of the model by others, and influence from and impact on the context.

    Differing Ways that Computing Academics Understand Teaching.2007In: Australian Computer Science Communications, ISSN 0157-3055, Vol. 29, no 5, p. 97-106Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents first results from a wide-ranging phenomenographic study of computing academics' understanding of teaching. These first results focus upon four areas: the role of lab practical sessions, the experience of teaching success, conceptions of motivating and engaging students, and the granularity of the teacher's focus. The findings are comparable with prior work on the understandings of academics in other disciplines. This study was started as part of a workshop on phenomenography. Most participants at the workshop received their first training in phenomenography. This paper summarises the structure of the workshop.

    Research Perspectives on the Objects-Early Debate2006In: SIGCSE Bulletin: inroads, Vol. 38, no 4, p. 146-165Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In March 2004, SIGCSE members contributed to a mailing list discussion on the question of whether programming should be taught objects first or imperative first. We analyse that discussion, exploring how the CS community debates the issue and whether contributors’ positions are supported by the research literature on novice programmers. We applied four distinct research methods to the discussion: cognitive science, rhetorical analysis in the critical tradition, phenomenography and biography. We identify the cognitive claims made in the email discussion and find there is not a consensus in the research literature as to whether the objects first approach or the imperative approach is harder to learn. From the rhetorical analysis, we find that the discussion was not so much a debate between OO-first versus imperative-first, but instead was more for and against OO-first. Our phenomenographic analysis identified and categorized the underlying complexity of the discussion. We also applied a biographical method to explore the extent to which the participants' views are shaped by their own prior experience. The paper concludes with some reflections upon paradigms, and the manner in which the CS discipline community defines itself.

    Student Evaluation in an International Collaborative Project Course2001In: Proceedings WISE workshop, 2001Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Grading is a frequently discussed and contentious issue. There are several views on how best to do grading and deciding how to grade students who participate in a joint international project-oriented course is far from trivial. This paper examines some in-situ observations and concerns, here referred to as myths, which arose during the project. Some statistical information extracted from the assessment data is used to examine the truth and relevance of these myths.

However, even though understanding the systemic aspects and connected nature of contemporary society, it remains unclear what such understanding entails in detail, and even more unclear what may constitute good teaching. We present the results from a teaching-learning design project on the topic of large societal and complex technological systems, which are seen as constituted of transformation and transport, acting on matter, energy and information. The main results are a suggested and evaluated plan of teaching developed in collaboration with a team of technology teachers, as well as descriptions of how pupils’ system thinking is constituted in terms of four basic aspects: Resource and intention of the system; System component constitution; Process and transformation in components and system; Network character. In total, a teaching plan spanning four lessons was realised in four different classrooms, with classes’ sizes ranging 15 to 25 pupils in the ages 14 and 15. The teaching design progresses through focusing specific parts of various systems, for example the transformation of polluted water to clean water in a water purification plant as part of the water supply system. There is an emphasis on the function of the part in relation to the system on the one hand, and on how the part is and can be realised technically, taking care to relate the latter to what is taken up in other curricular strands of technology. The last part focuses the examination of technological systems as constituted by interacting and meaningful parts, where their network nature may emerge.

    Integrating international students into CS programs2015In: Proc. 1st Al Baha University and Uppsala University Symposium on Quality in Computing Education, 2015, p. 6-8Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In recent years there has been a rapid increase in the intake of international students at universities. Integrating foreign students into the disciplinary and social culture prevalent at the university is a challenging task. In this paper, first, we summarize the findings of three of our studies on the experiences of Chinese students studying computer science at the Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University, Sweden. Then, based on our findings we make recommendations on how to integrate international students into academic life at Computer Science departments. We focus on the program and course levels, and also at the level of individual students in their new social and cultural environment.

    A perspective from Vietnamese students on teaching of soft skills2017In: Proc. 5th International Conference on Learning and Teaching in Computing and Engineering, IEEE Computer Society, 2017, p. 23-24Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Soft skills are significant to the engineering labour market, especially in Information Technology where demands are high on for instance communication skill, teamwork skill, presentation skill, etc. Despite their importance, educating students in using those skills is not fully included in the bachelor education programmes, especially in developing countries. This project aims to gain insights in how soft skills are taught in Vietnamese universities, and which skills are missing in their bachelor education programmes. The findings are intended to support education in order to develop the teaching of soft skills for Vietnamese students, and decrease the unemployment rate of Vietnamese graduates. In this project, semi-structured interviews, by e-mail, have been used to collect the data. There are eight Vietnamese interviewees who have experiences from various education programmes. The interview transcripts were then analysed and categorised into themes. The results of our work are a preliminary identification of missing skills in the undergraduate programmes, and a set of proposed skills that could be considered to improve the education programmes.
