Abstract

In the late 1980s there was a widespread belief in the informatics education community that informatics curricula were maturing and that the rate of change would slow down. However, the rate of change in informatics programs is as rapid as ever. In this focus group paper we examine the current state of informatics education and identify some of the stimuli for change and hindrances to change as well as future trends within and impacting informatics education.
