Welcome to the CAS Research Community

This community is for is for teachers, volunteers, researchers, lecturers or outreach staff who work in the computing education space.

You might like to:

  • use research to help explain (show intent) and improve their teaching
  • take part in research
  • engage with or undertake research as part of studies (e.g. ITT, masters, Ph.D.)
  • lead research as part of the jobs

CAS Research is here to support all, working together to achieve the following goals:

  • To raise the profile of computing education research within CAS
  • To support CAS members in their engagement with computer education research
  • To raise the profile of computing education research generally

This community is run by Dr Jane Waite and Dr Jon Chippindall
