Prof. Lin Received Best Paper Award of IEEE Transactions on Education

Associate Professor Trinity, Yu-Tzu Lin and Professor Wu Cheng Chih and graduate student Hou Ting Yun have received the best paper Award of IEEE Transactions on Education. The first author Lin Yu Tzu was given the award by the president of IEEE Education Society, Claudio Brito.
The Frontiers in Education, held in Indianapolis, America on October 18th to 21st, was sponsored by IEEE Education Society. Hundreds of electrical engineers and researchers attended the event to discuss the theory, technology and creativity. The IEEE Transactions on Education Theodore E. Batchman Best Paper Award was given in the meeting.
The awarded theory, Tracking Students’ Cognitive Processes During Program Debugging—An Eye-Movement Approach, explores students' cognitive processes while debugging programs by using an eye tracker. Students' eye movements during debugging were recorded by an eye tracker to investigate how high- and low-performance students act differently during debugging and how to help low achievers.
 
Apart from Lin Yu Tzu Wu Cheng Chih, two teachers and Hou Tingyun, a post-graduate student at the institute of information and education, Yang Fangying, professor of National Taiwan Normal University for Science and Education, also gave many valuable suggestions on the research methods of the eye movement.
 
Prof. Fang-Ying Yang of Graduate Institute of Science Education, one of the co-authors has made some suggestions in research method on eye-movement. According to Lin, the paper is about program teaching in computer science. It’s a pleasure to be recognized by an authority in academic and more related studies are expected in the future.
