Several aspects of informatics curricula and teaching methods at the
university level are reported in this volume, including:
* Challenges in defining an international curriculum;
* The diversity in informatics curricula;
* Computing programs for scientists and engineers;
* Patterns of curriculum design;
* Student interaction;
* Teaching of programming;
* Peer review in education.
This book contains a selection of the papers presented at the Working
Conference on Informatics Curricula, Teaching Methods and Best Practice
(ICTEM 2002), which was sponsored by the International Federation for
Information Processing (IFIP) Working Group 3.2, and held in
Florianpolis, Brazil in July 2002.
The working groups were organized in three parallel tracks. Working Group 1
discussed the "Directions and Challenges in Informatics Education". The
focus of Working Group 2 was "Teaching Programming and Problem Solving".
Working Group 3 discussed "Computing: The Shape of an Evolving Discipline."
Each working group worked actively and prepared a report with the results
of the discussions; these reports are included as the second part of this book.
