Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Computer programming is a fascinating area, but at the same time, complex. In the teaching–learning process, teachers face many difficulties in finding techniques and methodologies to facilitate the learning of languages and to foster problem-solving skills.

At the same time, students find it difficult to understand the subjects and do not feel motivated to continue pursuing their studies and achieve good grades.

This Special Issue will specifically focus on the new and innovative methodologies, best practices, trends, techniques, and tools toward improving the teaching–learning process of computer programming.

In this Special Issue, we will publish an extended version of the best papers selected from the International Computer Programming Education Conference (ICPEC’2020), and will also be open to receiving independent submissions.
