Camilo Vieira Mejia - Computation in Engineering and Science Education
The use of computing to solve complex problems has permeated most scientific and engineerin areas. Computational Science and Engineering has now been included into the ACM CS curricula as "the application of computer science to solve problems across a range of disciplines". This research program focuses on taking advantage of computational tools and methods for three elements of instructional design in science and engineering: (1) promoting engineering student learning of computational science in their disciplinary context: content; (2) using computational tools and methods such as learning analytics to understand and characterize students' learning processes: assessment; and (3) supporting student disciplinary learning using computational tools such as computer programming and computer simulations: pedagogy.
