Research-based development of teaching material
There is a need for new, research-based educational material that demonstrates how to integrate computational methods into the curricula of basic science disciplines.
The centre develops, tests and applies research-based educational material that integrates the use of computing across exposition, examples, exercises and exams.
To achieve this, the centre is:
- developing a repository of teaching material and assessment methods
- developing textbooks and interactive and modularized material that integrate computational methods and programming examples
- studying the usage and effects of these methods using big data approaches, interviews, and observation
- providing support for writers by establishing writing groups, finance writing retreats and sabbaticals, and involve students in the iterative process of text improvement
- developing and maintains CSE publishing tools such as doconce
- building partnerships with key publishing houses, such as Springer, to develop and publish CSE book series
