Let’s talk about CS!

  • To communicate about a science is the most important key competence in education for any science. Without communication we cannot teach, so teachers should reflect about the language they use in class properly. But the language students and teachers use to communicate about their CS courses is very heterogeneous, inconsistent and deeply influenced by tool names. There is a big lack of research and discussion in CS education regarding the terminology and the role of concepts and tools in our science. We don’t have a consistent set of terminology that we agree on to be helpful for learning our science. This makes it nearly impossible to do research on CS competencies as long as we have not agreed on the names we use to describe these. This workshop intends to provide room to fill with discussion and first ideas for future research in this field.
