PBL and Computer Programming — The Seven Steps Method with Adaptations

Esko Nuutila, Seppo Törmä, Lauri Malmi
2005 Computer Science Education  
In this paper, we describe and discuss our experiences on applying PBL, especially the seven steps method widely used in medical faculties, in an introductory computer programming course.  ...  According to our experience, the PBL method increases the commitment of the students which results in a significantly lower drop-out rate: the average is 17% versus 45% in our traditional programming courses  ...  We start by giving a short overview of the course and the variety of learning methods used in addition to PBL. Then we describe the PBL method in detail and give examples of PBL cases used.  ...

Weaving a Formal Methods Education with Problem-Based Learning [chapter]

J Paul Gibson
2008 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
Problem-based learning has gradually moved from being an innovative pedagogique technique, commonly used to better-motivate students, to being widely adopted in the teaching of many different disciplines  ...  The idea of weaving formal methods through computing (or software engineering) degrees is not a new one. However, there has been little success in developing and implementing such a curriculum.  ...  Example 4: Games, Puzzles and Intelligence Some of the games that we have used in our PBL teaching include TicTacToe [33] , Connect4, and the 15-puzzle.  ...

Integrating Big data and Cloud Computing Topics into the Computing Curricula: A modular Approach

Debzani Deb, Muztaba Fuad
2021 Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing  
This study argues that, for substantial coverage of big data and cloud computing concepts and skills, the relevant topics need to be integrated into multiple core courses across the CS curriculum rather  ...  than creating additional courses and performing a major overhaul of the curriculum.  ...  However, the challenge is that many of the tools and techniques of the bigdata and cloud computing paradigm have emerged only in the last few years and have not yet transitioned into the most recent ACM  ...
