CALL FOR PAPER - WCCCE 2010

The WCCCE 2010 Conference Committee is soliciting papers, descriptions of demonstrations, proposals for panels, proposals for posters and proposals for Birds of a Feather sessions in a broad range of topics. The topics should be related to teaching and learning in computing science and other computer-related fields such as computer technology and information systems. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Post-secondary programs and curricula
  • New or experimental curricula at any level
  • Teaching strategies, materials and tools for specific concepts or courses
  • Gender, ethnicity, accessibility issues in computer education
  • Applications for distance and/or distributed learning
  • Multimedia applications for computer education
  • Issues pertaining to enrollment, retention, academic success and experiential learning
  • Issues pertaining to retraining and upgrading
  • Innovations and approaches to K-12 IT education
  • Collaborations between K-12 and post-secondary institutions in IT education

If you are using unique methods to teach a computer related topic, this is the place to share your approach. If you have successfully adopted a new tool or technology in your computer related courses or labs, this is the place to brag about it. If you have developed a tool that improves instruction quality for your courses, this is the place to demonstrate it. Even if you have tried methods or tools in your instruction with little success, we are still eager to hear about it. Your experience will help us all.

Papers may describe teaching strategies, research projects, or instructional tools and applications. Accepted submissions will be given between 25 and 45 minutes during the paper presentation.
Short Papers are intended to present work in progress or lessons learned from unsuccessful experiments. Accepted submissions will be given between 5 and 15 minutes during the paper presentation.
Panels are intended to present multiple perspectives on a single topic. Panels duration will normally be 1 hour.
Workshops are intended to present a technique or tool you have experimented with and would like to share. Workshop lengths will be of 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Birds of a Feather sessions provide an environment for colleagues with similar interests to meet for informal discussion. Discussion time will vary based on topic.
