The Computers in Education Division (CoED) is a division of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). The purpose of ASEE is the advancement of education in all of its functions that pertain to engineering and allied branches of science and technology, including the process of teaching and learning, counseling, research, extension services, and public relations.
The purposes of CoED are identical to those of ASEE, but with special emphasis on the following:
- To provide a medium of exchange for innovative concepts and experience-proven applications of computers and computational methods and devices in education.
- To develop, test, and publish research processed curricula for computer instruction for student and teacher development at all educational levels.
- To contribute to the general knowledge of its membership in the areas of computation.
- To broaden, where beneficial, the uses of computational technologies by educators, students, and educational institutions.
The Computers in Education Division (CoED) of ASEE currently has two main avenues of endeavor: the Computers in Education Journal and the CoED sessions at the ASEE Annual Conference.
Both of these avenues of service to CoED members and the profession are dependent upon volunteer effort.
The Computers in Education Journal serves engineering, mathematics, and science faculties who wish to improve the quality of instruction through the use of computers.
The Journal assumes no responsibility for the statements and opinions advanced by contributors. The views expressed are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent positions of CoED or the publisher.
Full text of the Computers in Education Journal is available on-line in an open access format. The model currently employed by the journal is similar to “Open Access Gold” provided by many publishers in which the Open access fee is paid by the author. The fee which CoED Journal collects pays for the website hosting, manuscript reviewer system, typesetting tools, and DOI registration fees.
The Computers in Education Journal is a peer-reviewed publication. All papers submitted are reviewed in detail by senior faculty volunteers before acceptance for publication. Volunteers perform editorial functions and final proof-reading after authors have proof-read the galleys of their papers.
The Computers in Education Journal is financially self-supporting through page charges by authors, subscriptions by organizations/libraries/individuals, and the annual CoED membership dues through ASEE.
CoED sessions at the ASEE Annual Conference are organized by the CoED Program Chair with emphasis in topical areas of interest to CoED members. CoED sessions are advertised and promoted by CoED in its Annual Conference publications and mailings.
Computers in Education Journal papers were once derived totally from papers presented at the CoED sessions of the ASEE Annual conference. That source of Computers in Education Journal papers is now about one-fourth of the total papers published.
