Research shows that examples play an important role for cognitive skill acquisition. Students as well as teachers rank examples as important resources for learning to program. Therefore examples must be consistent with the principles and rules of the topics we are teaching. However, educators often struggle to find or develop objectoriented example(More)
As a report of a working group at ITiCSE 2006, this paper provides a vision of how visualizations and the software that generates them may be integrated into hypertextbooks and course management systems. This integration generates a unique synergy that we call a Visualization-based Computer Science Hypertextbook (VizCoSH). By borrowing features of both(More)
Computer science educators spend a lot of effort designing programming assignments, and many are willing to share the results of this investment. However, sharing of programming assignments occurs primarily in an ad hoc manner through informal channels. There are no widely used mechanisms that support instructors in finding and sharing such resources.(More)
Data sharing is common, and sometimes even required, in other disciplines. Creating a mechanism for data sharing in computer science education research will benefit both individual researchers and the community. While it is easy to say that data sharing is desirable, it is much more difficult to make it a practical reality. This paper reports on an(More)
The Java Wiki Integrated Development Environment (JavaWIDE) is an innovative environment that promotes active learning and collaboration in programming courses. This paper surveys how JavaWIDE's features have been used to promote active and collaborative learning in both traditional and distance education (synchronous) in four different environments: high(More)
The Health District is a logical administrative unit for planning health services, and therefore the feasibility of delivering education for general practitioners across one such area was studied. By providing a suitable educational programme at convenient locations, it was possible to involve 89% out of 180 principals in General Practice in the Exeter(More)

Postgraduate training programmes for family medicine are developing simultaneously in many different parts of the world. In the UK continuity of care is highly valued but vocational training schemes have not been able to provide continuity of care for patients throughout a three-year training course.In Puerto Rico a vocational training scheme exists in(More)
