Welcome to the Computing Education Research (CEdR) Reading Group!

Our goal is to raise the bar for computing pedagogy at ANU by developing a shared understanding of the best research in computing education, and to build a network to support CEdR at ANU. We plan to meet weekly for one hour, discussing one paper/topic each session.

The weekly reading group meetings are:

  • time: Monday mornings at 10am (excluding public holidays, obviously)

  • location: Board Room 4.15 in the #145 Hanna Neumann Building

  • paper schedule: see table below

The logistics (pre-post discussions, last-minute venue changes, etc.) will be managed through the CEdR Microsoft Teams group: you can request to be added to this group with this link, or if you get stuck you can email Ben or Josh.
