      McDonald, Carlton G.; University of Derby (2017-05-25)
      Teaching programming has been a major challenge for decades. It seems that student engagement is an additional problem that must be overcome.

What techniques might be used to enthuse students to participate in the activities required to learn to be effective programmers?
