McKerrow, P. J., Development of computing science teaching laboratories, Department of Computing Science, University of Wollongong, Working Paper 82-6, 1982, 10p.
Specialised laboratory facilities are needed to train computing scientists because, by nature, it is both an experimental and an applied science, requiring a large amount of practical work in courses. These laboratories are expensive to build and maintain. The development of Computing Science teaching laboratories at The University of Wollongong are outlined. Factors effecting laboratory design are examined.
