Sangho Suh, PhD candidate in Computer Science, presented at a PhD seminar for Human-Computer Interaction. The seminar focused on his recent study which investigated how the medium of comics can be used to make abstract coding concepts more concrete and meaningful.
Suh's presentation proposed a design process and tools to support the creation of coding strips, a form of comic strips tightly coupled with its corresponding code. The proposed design process and tools were evaluated through two design workshops with students and high school computer science teachers with the goal of evaluating the feasibility, strengths, and weaknesses to this approach.
