Topics of interest for the conference include, but are not limited to: the use of technology in education, course content, curriculum structure, methods of assessment, mobile, flexible, online learning, and evaluations of alternative approaches.

These innovations may be in the context of formal courses or self-directed learning; they may involve, for example, introductory programming, service courses, specialist undergraduate or postgraduate topics, industry-related short courses. We welcome submissions directed at issues of current and local importance, as well as topics of international interest. Such topics may include transition from school to university, articulation between vocational and university education, quality management in teaching, teaching people from other cultures, attracting and retaining female students, online, mobile and blended learning.

The program committee will select the papers to appear based on their potential to enhance learning outcomes in computing courses. All papers will be fully refereed using a double blind reviewing process. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
