Creating Environments for Computational Researcher Education
The CRA-E committee was formed in the spring of 2008 and had its first meeting at the CRA Snowbird 2008 conference, with this as its mission statement:
“Our charter is to explore the issues of undergraduate education in computing and computational thinking for those who will do research in disciplines from the sciences to the humanities.
As technology and teaching methodologies continue to evolve, how should programs in computer science, computational science, and information science co-evolve? Can we communicate a core set of ideas, principles, and methodologies that is domain-independent?”
Over the following year and half the committee continued to meet and investigate the issues involved; this report records the recommendations that have resulted from that process.
