Koli Calling 2023 - Paper Accepted - Constructive Alignment in Modern Computing Education: An Open-Source Computer-Based Examination System
2 Nov 2023 • Matthias Linhuber

We are thrilled to share that our paper, “Constructive Alignment in Modern Computing Education: An Open-Source Computer-Based Examination System,” has been accepted at Koli Calling International Conference on Computing Education Research in Finland this year. In our research, we tackle a critical challenge in computing education: the disconnect between teaching aims and the evaluation methods in large-scale paper-based examinations (PBEs). Such exams often fail to assess the higher-order cognitive abilities that are essential for students to succeed in the fast-paced and complex tech industry.

Interview: AI in the center of our society
3 Aug 2023 • Stephan Krusche

In an interview in the magazine “Wirtschaftswoche”, Prof. Dr. Stephan Krusche discusses AI in the center of our society. With the establishment of a new data science center, TUM is placing a clear focus on data science and AI at the Heilbronn Campus. The current hype around AI-based language programs such as ChatGPT raises hopes, but also concerns. In the end, it all comes down to responsible use. Natural stupidity beats artificial intelligence any day," is a quote from British fantasy writer Sir Terry Pratchett.
