Abstract

Teaching programming has been a major challenge for decades. It seems that student engagement is an additional problem that must be overcome. Many students only engage in what they know will be assessed. Other “directed study”, they ignore, not recognising the foundation these other activities provide enable them to do well when assessed. What techniques might be used to enthuse students to participate in the activities required to learn to be effective programmers?
