SACLA’17 is committed to the original motivation of the very first SACLA meetings more than forty years ago: to provide a forum at which lecturers of Computer Science and Informatics can discuss contemporary issues of lecturing these subjects at tertiary education level. With the motivation of above, SACLA’17 calls for original research papers in all matters concerning the teaching of Computer Science (CS), Information Systems (IS) or Information Technology (IT) in institutions of Tertiary Education.
Papers can describe an educational research project, classroom experience, teaching technique, curricular initiative, or pedagogical tool. Relevant contemporary topics might include – for example:
Submission and Publication:
