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
