Teaching modeling in computer science as an ecosystem: a provocative analogy

Martin Gogolla, Perdita Stevens
2018 Computer Science Education  
Teaching modeling in computer science is complicated. Many factors contribute, and are related in diverse ways.  ...  This contribution views teaching modeling as an ecosystem: we push the analogy as far as we can, with the intention of provoking readers' thought in unaccustomed directions, which may perhaps lead to interesting  ...  Of course, this is intended as a provocative analogy, not as a claim to be taken literally: yet we find it a useful one for organizing our thoughts about progress that has been made in recent years in  ...

An Epidemic Analogy Highlights the Importance of Targeted Community Engagement in Spaces Susceptible to Misinformation

Aya Osman, C. Brandon Ogbunugafor
2022 Frontiers in Communication
