Despite a lack of consensus on the nature of Computing Research Methods (CRM), a growing number of programs are exploring models and content for CRM courses. This report is one step in a participatory design process to develop a general framework for thinking about and teaching CRM.We introduce a novel sense-making structure for teaching CRM. That structure… (More)
The <u>c</u>omputing <u>r</u>esearch <u>m</u>ethods (CRM) literature is scattered across discourse communities and published in specialty journals and conference proceedings. This dispersion has led to the use of inconsistent terminology when referring to CRM. With no established CRM vocabulary and isolated discourse… (More)
For the past three years, SIGCSE has sponsored a design research project on teaching Computing Research Methods (CRM) . The initial phase of the work included an ITiCSE working group that gathered a great deal of literature on and about: computing research; CRM; and teaching CRM . During the literature review, we discovered a number of similar current… (More)
SIGCSE-CSRM's mission is to support collaborative exploration of content, pedagogy, and curricular issues related to teaching research methods in computing (CRM). The committee runs a listserv and a wiki, including a repository of CRM course materials. At ITiCSE 2006, a SIGCSE-CSRM working group developed a sense-making framework for teaching computing… (More)
We present an efficient, fully automated algorithm to assemble ESTs into full-length cDNA sequences that represent the complete coding regions of a gene. Our EST clustering algorithm is neither hierarchical nor incremental, but recursive, processing each EST once. The algorithm exploits a variety of syntactic and statistical features of the ESTs. The… (More)
The panelists approach diversity from different points of view and experiences to produce a positive and productive foundation for an open discussion on the many facets of diversity, it potential, and positive impact on our profession.
