SIGCSE 2014 continues our long tradition of bringing together colleagues from around the world to present papers, panels, posters, special sessions, and workshops, and to discuss computer science education in birds-of-a-feather sessions and informal settings. The SIGCSE Technical Symposium addresses problems common among educators working to develop, implement and/or evaluate computing programs, curricula, and courses. The symposium provides a forum for sharing new ideas for syllabi, laboratories, and other elements of teaching and pedagogy, at all levels of instruction.
Submissions in line with the conference theme, “Leveraging Computing to Change Education,” are encouraged. The theme focuses our attention on how computing influences the way we educate at all levels. This influence includes applications designed to support student learning, the curricular impact of computing, learning research, and the impact of technology in all forms of education. We want to look beyond the conventional computer science education boundaries for connections as well.
The first annual meeting of the ACM Conference on Learning at Scale will be held March 4-5, 2014 in Atlanta, GA, USA. This conference is intended to promote scientific exchange of interdisciplinary research at the intersection of the learning sciences and computer science. Inspired by the emergence of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and the accompanying huge shift in thinking about education, this conference as created by ACM as a new scholarly venue and key focal point for the review and presentation of the highest quality research on how learning nd teaching can change and improve when done at scale.
