Summary
The transition from secondary school to university can be a daunting process for many students. The low level of contact with their peers and staff members can leave students with many problems in their first year, resulting in large attrition rates as students struggle to adjust to their changed environment. Computer science students are even more susceptible to these problems because of the isolating nature of programming and computer science being a field in which most students have no prior experience. This project proposes a new learning environment for undergraduate students within the School of Computer Science. The proposal, a Programming Centre located within the school, is aimed at improving the experience of first-year students by providing facilities to support collaborative learning activities.
