Student transformations: are they computer scientists yet?
2009 (English)In: Proceedings of the fifth international workshop on Computing education research workshop, New York, NY, USA: ACM, Association for Computing Machinery , 2009, 129-140 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We examine the changes in the ways computing students view their field as they learn, as reported by the students themselves in short written biographies. In many ways, these changes result in students thinking and acting more like computer scientists and identifying more with the computing community. Most of the changes are associated with programming and software engineering, rather than theoretical computer science, however.
