Computing education research seminars: Seminar publications

You can read up on our past research seminars in short chapters written by our seminar speakers.

Each chapter contains the key content of the seminar, as well as additional information and materials for you to delve deeper into the big topics of computing education research.

For each seminar series, we publish all chapters in a combined publication called ‘Proceedings’ that you can download for free.
