As a final year supervisor for twelve years on the degree, masters, and PhD, I have noticed time and time again students approached their thesis confused and unsure what is expected from them; and rightly so. What is involved in the write up of the final year thesis is not something students are introduced to during their studies. The structure, content, and format of a thesis are only understood by seeing good examples. A thesis is the largest assignment a student will ever likely to do and will resemble nothing they have done before. A final year thesis has to demonstrate academic structure, content, and integrity, something that is not always presented clearly by supervisors. As a supervisor, I designed a handout to help and guide my students. This handout became very popular as students shared it with their friends. After many years of editing and improving my notes, I have decided to publish it as a book. The second edition of the book comes with more examples. Taking away the fear of the writing up and having the confidence that a great thesis is achievable has helped my students focus instead on finding creative, challenging, and inspiring projects.

Introduction to Computer Education for Middle School

Author: Fadi Safieddine
ISBN: 154035251X
Release Date: 2016-11-11

This project grew from the striking realization that secondary education textbooks frequently are pitched to and designed for young men. They often lacked clarity of instruction and vocabulary for young digital natives. The approach seemed reminiscent of the thirty-year-old texts the instructors themselves learned. This text attempts to correct those problems. We have designed it so that students are able to build on their knowledge of IT. The book has intentionally used language that ICT students of today use in their current interactions with technology. Technical terms have been defined for students throughout the book Exercises at the end of each chapter allow students to see individual growth in knowledge and instructors to see the level of progress individual students are making.The curriculum herein makes use of a variety of pronouns and experiential backgrounds in order that students can imagine their future selves as ICT experts. Moreover, the book applauds and highlights the women who have been central in the development of technology, thusly helping to correct perceptions of computer science as a field for men.
