How can we respond to the ever changing needs of the students in Informatics? How can we prepare students for advanced work in computer science, applied mathematics, and scientific computation and provide them the technical and analytical skills they need in order to be successful in the work place?

The book is intended to include a consideration of teaching pedagogy, instructional design and learning outcomes in teaching and learning Informatics. Experiences and practices related to these topics are also expected.

We look for important connections with other disciplines that may inspire interesting and useful projects, and where innovative mathematical reasoning may lead to new insights and applications.

Target Audience

Recommended Topics

Should range from novel requirements, environments, ecosystems, technologies, methodologies to experiences about teaching approaches for Informatics.
