Research Group Computer Science Education

The working group Computer Science Education addresses questions of contemporary computer science education.

These include, among others, the question of empirically based modeling of systematic knowledge acquisition in computer science and, in particular, the interplay of topic-related and process-related competencies. Furthermore, it is also about the development and evaluation of lessons for modern topics in computer science and, linked to this, about the question of effective, continuous training of teachers in a continuously and rapidly developing subject.

Further, the research of the group focuses on the contribution of computer science education to general digital education, e.g. in the sense of computational thinking, especially for teacher training.

The working group "Computer Science Education" is a cooperation between Kiel University ( and the Leibniz Institute for Science and Mathematics Education.
