Summary
The ICT degrees in most Australian universities have a sequence of three subjects/units that teach programming. This project will document the academic standards associated with those three subjects, in the six participating universities and elsewhere. This will necessitate the development of a rich framework for describing the learning goals associated with programming - an epistemology. It will also be necessary to benchmark exam questions that are mapped onto this epistemology. This project unifies three existing unfunded projects, running across ICT departments in six Australian universities. The three projects are strongly related, but began from different viewpoints, and currently only one person is a member of all three. At present the members of each project communicate primarily via email. ALTC funding will provide the participants, from the three eastern mainland states, with the funds necessary to meet regularly face-to-face, allowing for a much richer exchange of ideas and making the unified project more than the sum of its parts
