GI Special Interest Group "Computer Science Education - CSE"

The special interest group 'Computer Science Education - CSE' in the German Informatics Society (GI) provides a forum for topics in the field of computer science education.

In this special interest group, questions from all education phases, university, school, and economy are discussed, as far as they concern basic, advanced and further education in the area of computer science. The group considers 'Computer Science Education' an independent discipline of computer science, which contributes to assuring the quality of computer science education processes, also with regard to well-founded media education. It is required to design, further develop and evaluate appropriate content, methodological and media concepts for computer science in schools and universities and thus to make a contribution to educational research. Computer science education fulfills this task by orienting itself towards scientific developments, analysing them and selecting and preparing relevant aspects from educational points of view. It also has the task of analysing educational practice and feeding it back into theory development.

The special interest group sees itself as a place of discussion for CS education research that provides innovative impulses for the practice of CS education. The special interest group was founded on 12 April 2002 at the University of Paderborn (cf. policy paper 'concept of the group').

Speakers of the Group

In accordance with the GI statutes, the group is headed by a steering committee which has elected two spokespersons to represent the group within and outside the GI:
