Our Computer Science Education Research (CSER) group specialises in Learning Analytics and Learning Technologies. It is particularly concerned with supporting engaging and effective computer science and software engineering education, through:

  • learning analytics
  • innovative learning approaches
  • online learning environments.

The CSER group leads the CSER Digital Technologies Education Program, a national education program targeting K-12 computer science education, undertaking both applied and fundamental research into K-12 computer science concept development.

  • Research impact

    The CSER group aims to facilitate technology-enabled education and training that revolutionises learning environments’ effectiveness. 

    The group’s research has been applied nationally, including to:
