Early intervention in programming education: Unlocking potential through peer-mentoring and reflective practice

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This paper addresses issues associated with retention and progression of learners undertaking introductory programming modules within Further Educations (FE) and Higher Education (HE). Through conducting an Action Research study, this work focuses on a year 1 class group enrolled on a software engineering degree and considers how early intervention group work, with peer mentoring, assessment and reflection, can influence the retention rate and performance of learners considered to be at risk of not progressing to year 2 of the program.
