Abstract

There is a need for undergraduate STEM students to develop high-order thinking and metacognitive skills in problem solving, which is verified by program accreditation documents and employer requirements. In this paper, we present a framework for designing online Computer Science (CS) course component to infuse core computational thinking (CT) skills with CS course content. When designing online CS course components, we apply the preference matrix design tool to organize course materials and make connections between CS and computational thinking. The explicit connection between computational thinking and CS course content deepens students’ understanding on computational thinking in problem solving.
