Are your students afraid of taking programming language courses? Are they intimidated by the syntax, keywords, punctuations that you cover in the class? Have you thought about making a change? Have you thought about your first or second language learning experience and if you can apply it to facilitate programming language study? Do you want to learn how to effectively design a programming language course in a blended learning environment? In this workshop, we want to share our experience with you. We will show you how to apply second language acquisition to facilitate a blended learning of programming language based on our NSF funded project findings, our own second language experience, and blended learning design experience. Using this approach will place greater emphasis on problem solving techniques utilized in all courses. Participants will be engaged in proven strategies and techniques through active discussion, collaboration, and sharing of experiences. Discussion topics will range from programming language study and teaching experience, student perception and feedback, online course design and techniques. Collaboration will be conducted by allowing participants to work on different levels of programming problems and experiencing our project design. We will show the website, PowerPoint, videos, quizzes, surveys, and programming problems developed for this project. Each workshop participant will receive a project flyer and a flash drive, which includes our project materials. This workshop is being offered as a NSF project of Research Initiation Grants in Engineering Education under the division of Division of Engineering Education and Centers.
