Aims & scope of special issue
Data is THE currency of the 21st century; data literacy and competencies of computational thinking will be in high demand – everywhere and particularly in engineering. The sheer volume of data, the complexity of ethical considerations and the sophistication of available tools do not reduce the demand on humans making decisions, it rather highlights the need for specialized competencies collecting, assessing, processing, visualizing, and communicating data and the information embedded within. In addition, dealing with the quality of data, management of repositories and uncertainty in data-driven processes require concerted efforts of cross- and inter-disciplinary educational efforts.
This special issue is intended to report high-quality research/empirical scholarship on data literacy and computational thinking as it relates to engineering in higher education settings. This special issue also aims to demonstrate emerging issues in the basic research, applied research and scholarship of learning and teaching practices in engineering education. The issue is neutral to the methodological traditions of prospective papers and invites high quality papers from quantitative, interpretive, mixed, critical, and historical perspectives knowing that each tradition has their own standards and principles of quality. Unpublished original and innovative papers that are not currently under review by another journal or conference are invited in the following relevant areas:

Notes for prospective authors
The authors should prepare their manuscript following the formatting guidelines set out by Journal of Computing in Higher Education that can be found at “Instructions for Authors”
All manuscripts should be submitted online at https://www.editorialmanager.com/jche/ and the authors should include a note that the manuscript is submitted to this special issue. Authors should select Special Issue: Data Literacy & Computational Thinking in Engineering Education when they reach the “Article type” step in the submission process. Submitted papers should present original work relevant to one or more of the topics of the special issue, and should not have been submitted or published elsewhere.
All submitted papers will be evaluated on the basis of relevance, significance of contribution, technical quality, scholarship, and quality of presentation, following the Journal of Computing in Higher Education reviewing procedures. It is the policy of the journal that no submission, or substantially overlapping submission, be published or be under review at another journal or conference at any time during the review process.
