Research title: Adopting a comprehension-first pedagogy for programming in a national school system

Research Summary

As Computer Science students progress with their education, they are expected to program using programming concepts found in different programming languages. My research aims to uncover how students gradually transfer and improve their understanding of these concepts as they switch languages. I have developed a model of programming language transfer for relative novices and a pedagogy aligned with this model predictions that will enhance second programming language learning outcomes.
