Career Summary

Biography

Based at the University's Ourimbah campus, Simon lectures in information technology within the School of Design, Communication, and Information Technology. His principal areas of research are computing education, working on the perennial problem that some students find it very difficult to learn to program; and academic integrity, focusing on the differences between written assignments such as essays and the many different forms of non-textual assessment that some university students are required to undertake.

Research Expertise
Computing education: researching the difficulties that some students have grasping computing subject matter, particularly programming education, and possible ways of overcoming those difficulties. Bibliometrics: researching the emergence of computing education as a field of research; specifically within that area, analysing the body of published papers within computing education and identifying the increased proportion of those papers that are clearly research papers. Academic integrity: investigating ways that students cheat and ways of detecting and overcoming the cheating.

Teaching Expertise
Have taught in most areas of computer science and information technology. Currently, most of my teaching time involves computer programming courses.

Administrative Expertise
Deputy Head of School, 2009-2014 Head of IT Discipline, 2009-2012, 2014 Student Academic Conduct Officer, 2004-2012 Deputy Dean of Students, 2012-2013 Ourimbah Campus OH&S Committee, 1999-2007; Chair 2001-2006 Faculty of Science & IT OH&S Committee, 2004-2006 University OH&S Committee, Chair 2004-2006 University Human Research Ethics Committee, 2007-2008; Deputy Chair 2008

Collaborations
Simon's research tends to involve collaboration with various subgroups of an international group of computing education researchers. Members of the group come from Australia, New Zealand, Britain, the United States, Finland, Sweden, and elsewhere.

The journal Informatics in Education and the conference Koli Calling are compared, starting with Simon's system for the classification of computing education papers and going on to conduct a brief bibliometric analysis of the authors of papers in both publications, including their repeat rates and the countries from which they come. The analysis finds that despite their different natures, the Lithuanian journal and the Finnish conference are highly comparable in many respects. The broad conclusion is that the two publications work well together - but it would be good to see some Lithuanian authors contributing papers to Koli Calling. © 2009 Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, Vilnius.

This paper reports on research that used focus groups and a national online survey of computing students at Australian universities to investigate perceptions of acceptable academic practices in writing program code for assessment. The results indicate that computing students lack a comprehensive understanding of what constitutes acceptable academic practice with regard to writing program code. They are not clear on the need to reference code taken from other sources, or on how to do so. Where code from other sources is used, or inappropriate collaboration takes place between students, there appears to be a feeling that any academic misconduct is diminished or even nullified if the students subsequently work with the code to make it their own. These findings suggest a need for the development of standards that elucidate acceptable practices for computing, combined with ongoing education of computing students. Copyright © 2014 ACM.
