Abstract

Programming skills are seen as an essential competency in the 21st century. In response to the new curriculum for Basic Education announced by the Ministry of Education of Taiwan, most universities in Taiwan had announced the ability of programming as the key indicators. The traditional programming courses emphasize coding statement and algorithmic theory might. It is a high-level entry for students with non-information backgrounds, and it is easy for students to lack motivation to learn. Therefore, this exploratory work-in-progress study attempts to present an undergraduate programming course to conduct empirical evidence-based research at universities. Therefore, the improvement of programming teaching is an urgent task. To enhance the programming learning outcomes and motivation of university students, this project conduct empirical teaching experimental research in universities, from the integration of flip classrooms, combined with the development of live-coding and code annotations materials. A compulsory course, “Introduction to Python Programming”, has been designed for the general programming skills of the school. It is expected to be a valuable reference for programming innovative teaching.
