Hey folks 👋 ,
I’m kicking off a new Papers We Love chapter focused on Computer Science Education in particular. If you haven’t encountered Papers We Love, it’s kinda a book club for academic CS papers. This chapter will be focused on papers about learning and teaching computer science.
Sharing here since I know there’s a lot of interest in the process of learning programming and how our language design and choices influence it. If you have a paper about CS education that you love, or would like to present, we’d love to hear your suggestions! You can submit them via our GitHub Discussions board. Would love to welcome y’all to present!
We are still ramping up, but are targeting the last Thursday of each month for live presentations, with paper discussions continuing async via the discussion board in between.

@Jimmy Miller aw thanks! There's definitely been a lot of the city chapters that have gone remote, but they're still geo focused. We’re trying here to be explicitly global, remains to be seen how it'll go.
I think the best way to answer the examples is to talk about the sort of places the papers we're looking at might be submitted. Ones that come to mind are:
• SIGCSE https://www.sigcse.org/
• ITICSE https://iticse.acm.org/
• Koli calling https://www.kolicalling.fi/
Not to say that papers have to be submitted there, but those are some great forums for the topics we’re after

Seems pretty neat! Definitely will try to attend. Sadly, I know nothing about CS education so couldn't propose anything. 🙂
