primary goal of learning and teaching object-oriented concepts is
to enable people to successfully participate in an object-oriented
Successfully using object-oriented technology requires a thorough
understanding of basic OO concepts. However, learning these techniques,
as well as lecturing about these concepts has proven to be very
difficult in the past. Misconceptions can occur during the learning
cycle and the needed guidance can not always be directly provided.
The goal of this workshop is to share ideas about innovative teaching
approaches and tools to improve the teaching and learning of the
basic concepts of object technology rather than teaching a specific
programming language. Teaching tools can be either tools used in
environments or specific environments for learning OO, as well as
any kind of support for developing OO learning applications themselves.
