WGLD February 2019 Portland Meeting
Talk: Learning to Abstract
Portland, Oregon, USAMon, Feb 4, 2019 — Fri, Feb 8, 2019
Matthias Hauswirth presenting Learning to Abstract at the IFIP Working Group on Language Design 2019 meeting in Portland, Oregon, USA.
Abstraction is the essence of programming, and abstraction skills are important even beyond programming. However, learning to abstract is hard. Could we provide pedagogical supports that help learners to gain and improve “abstraction skills”, focusing on the essence of “abstraction”? And could we do so with minimal prerequisites?
