Using Education Theory to Frame CER: HCIL Invited Lecture

February 27, 2013 at 1:09 am 3 comments

I gave a talk on 19 February at HCIL at U. Maryland-College Park.  I was pleased with how it turned out.  One of the things I learned when I gave my Indiana talks was that I ought to frame my talk with how I define learning and what theoretical frameworks I’m drawing on (e.g., learning sciences, constructionism, situated learning, community of practice, and authenticity).  This was my first talk where I tried to do that, and I liked how I could keep referencing back to the theory as I went along.  The talk gave me a chance to connect my work in computing education research (CER) to a broader education theory.

    Did you mean constructionism (Papert) or constructivism (Vygotsky)? Been doing lots of thinking of the N vs. the V words these days…

      I meant “n” not “v”. Thanks — I’ve fixed.

    I really like it that CS researchers are beginning to situate CS education research in the context of education frameworks and education theory
