Description

The seventh Workshop on Teaching Computational Science (WTCS 2014) solicits submissions that describe innovations in teaching computational science in its various aspects (e.g. modeling and simulation, high-performance and large-data environments) at all levels and in all contexts. Typical topics include, but are not restricted to, innovations in the following areas:

    - course content,
    - curriculum structure,
    - methods of instruction,
    - methods of assessment,
    - tools to aid in teaching or learning,
    - evaluations of alternative approaches, and
    - non-academic training in computational sciences.

These innovations may be in the context of formal courses or self-directed learning; they may involve, for example, introductory programming, service courses, specialist undergraduate or postgraduate topics, industry-related short courses. We welcome submissions directed at issues of current and local importance, as well as topics of international interest. Such topics may include transition from school to university, articulation between vocational and university education, quality management in teaching, teaching people from other cultures, attracting and retaining female students, and flexible learning.
