TeCoMo 2019 : Teching Conceptual Modeling Minitrack @ HICSS-52
Call For Papers
In it’s inaugural year, the Teaching Conceptual Modeling 2019 (TeCoMo) Minitrack co-located with HICSS-52 focuses on how to teach the use of conceptual models to students, as students often struggle with selecting the right level of abstraction, strive for aesthetics and must understand the rules of the used graphical language, while trying to separate “inventing” the system from “describing” the system.
This Minitrack explores challenges, experiences, approaches, ideas, and new impulses in teaching conceptual modeling. In a highly interactive atmosphere, where the challenges of teaching conceptual modeling can be discussed, positioned, and addressed, we seek thought-provoking and highly constructive discussions among a broad audience and presenters in order to jointly identify promising educational approaches. We seek to try out proposed approaches, foster empirical studies, and facilitate collaboration between industry and academia in teaching conceptual modeling.
TeCoMo accepts contributions focused on, but not limited to the following topics:
Teaching approaches for conceptual modeling
Experience reports, especially challenges, difficulties, pitfalls, and negative experiences with learning success, project/assignment outcome, or the application of teaching approaches
Assignment/Project ideas, experiences, and instructional support for student work
Methods of instruction, e.g., flipped classroom, problem-based learning
Case studies and case examples from industry and academia
Proposals for and/or results of empirical studies on conceptual modeling
Methods and strategies of feedback and grading of student work
Conceptual modeling curricula and course structures
Teaching semantics, content, correctness, adequacy, aesthetics, and consistency of models, levels of abstraction, model integration, and code-generation
Teaching model quality, meta modeling, and a structured modeling process
Teaching modeling frameworks, languages, and diagram types
Special Interest Topics
In particular, we seek experience reports and empirical results. We explicitly encourage reports of negative experiences, failed attempts, or poor results in order to provoke discussions, find commonalities, and surmount challenges. Don't be shy!
TeCoMo a highly interactive format combining different elements. Classical paper presentations and presentations lay the foundation for discussions. Particularly, we intend to provoke discussions aiming at gaining an understanding of commonalities and differences of the different types of systems.
The workshop will be held in conjunction with HICSS-52 in Grand Weilea, Maui, Hawai’i (USA). More details on the venue can be found in the program section.
