Supported in part through the SIGCSE Speaker's Fund Grant
The U.S. National Science Foundation created the Computing Community
Consortium to stimulate the computing research community to envision and
pursue longer-range, more audacious research challenges.
I'd like to take this opportunity to engage you in this process. The next
ten years of advances in computer science should be far more significant,
and far more interesting, than the past ten. I'll review the progress that
our field has made, and I'll present a number of "grand challenge" problems
that we should be prepared to tackle in the coming decade.
I'll also discuss a recent assessment of of the status and direction of
computing research, carried out by the U.S. President's Council of Advisors
on Science and Technology, for which I co-chaired the working group that
formulated the report.
Computing Education Research: Who is it for? Oh, and why?
In this talk, I'll explore the process and products of
disciplinary-specific education research. This will include thinking about
who is the audience for the work and what use they put it to, as well as
the methods and approaches of different types of researcher.
