Abstract

In this article we first describe problem-solving and program development pedagogy (Deek, 1997), which has been used in freshman level computer and information science courses at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, (NJIT). After showing how this methodology is analogous to the "writing process" pedagogy fundamental to writing instruction in the United States, we then discuss how these comparable heuristics can be a basis for instructors "sharing" freshmen and goals in both computing and composition courses, both in the traditional and the virtual classroom. The authors suggest that refashioning course content and modifying Deek's problem solving methodology in both introductory courses will increase the potential for interdisciplinary between the Computer and Information Science (CIS) and the Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) departments at NJIT as well as other departments within the College of Science and Liberal Arts.
