[Abstract]: This paper reports the findings of a census of introductory programming courses. Eighty five courses from Australian and New Zealand universities are included. The census aims to discover languages and paradigms taught, tools used, texts employed, method of delivery to on-campus students, instructor experience and how problem solving strategies are taught. Of note in the 2003 census is the reduction in student enrolments in introductory programming courses since 2001, the differences in teaching between Australian and New Zealand courses, and trends relating to language, tools and paradigms.
