Call for Papers | ICPEC

A 4.ª edição da International Computer Programming Education Conference vai realizar-se entre os dias 26 e 28 de junho de 2023.

A programação é uma área fascinante, mas ao mesmo tempo complexa. No processo de ensino-aprendizagem, os professores enfrentam muitas dificuldades para encontrar técnicas e metodologias que facilitem a aprendizagem de linguagens de programação e fomentem a resolução de problemas. Simultaneamente, os estudantes têm dificuldade em compreender as disciplinas e não se sentem motivados a continuar os seus estudos.

A ICPEC pretende ser um espaço de discussão de tópicos que promovam novas metodologias, boas práticas, tendências, técnicas e ferramentas para melhorar o processo de ensino-aprendizagem da programação de computadores.
