Coding Pedagogy Collection Released

I’m excited to share that a new digital collection, Coding Pedagogy, has been launched! I contributed a chapter to this collection, but the best part of all is that the collection is Creative Commons licensed and available for viewing free online. 

The work features a series of chapters that explore issues related to teaching coding in the Media Studies discipline. For many non-Computer Science professors, teaching coding is likely to be a new and sometimes intimidating task and this book hopes to provide an introduction to different strategies and curriculum that instructors can apply in the classroom.

Currently, the following chapters are available now on the website:

  1. chapter 1: The Current State of Coding Curriculum Within Media and Communication Departments
    Jeremy Sarachan
  2. chapter 2: Beyond STEM: Coding Pedagogy in the Liberal Arts
    Maureen Ebben
  3. chapter 3: De-coded: Coding More Language Than Toy
    Aaron Chimbel
  4. chapter 4: Teaching Mobile App Development in a Mass Communication Program
    Cindy Royal, Ph.D.
  5. chapter 5: Communication Students CAN Code. Teaching Core Programming Concepts in a Course on Mobile Gaming
    Aaron Delwiche
  6. chapter 6: Multimodality, Writing Studies, and Teaching HTML and CSS as Rhetorical Design
    Dan Martin
  7. chapter 7: The Interactive Documentary as a Project-Based Coding Class
    Jeremy Sarachan
  8. chapter 8: p5.js in the Media Studies Classroom
    J.J. Sylvia IV
  9. chapter 9: R for Visualization, Statistics & Data Literacy
    Brian Walsh

Finally, because this is a digital collection, the project is open to additional proposals for new chapters. Please see the CFP for details.
