This research project is focused on the creation of a theoretical foundation for curriculum design in computing-related academic programs based on computational linguistics techniques. In this vein, the creation of a corpus linguistics based on actual experiences from experts around the world is required. To reach the main goal, 3 stages were stated: 1. Collecting information from experts worldwide based on real experiences on curriculum design. 2. Identifying common practices about curriculum design. 3. Proposing a simple nomenclature for the definition of curricular design practices. 4. Obtain feedback from defined practices.
