Abstract
The paper presents the purpose of learning programming language is to master the method of learning the language, rather than just master the language itself. Therefore, the cultivation of Computational Thinking is an important goal of language learning. After analyzing the teaching of Programming Languages in university, this paper put forward the Problem-Based Learning is beneficial to achieve this aim. During teaching process, Collaborative Learning and Grouping Learning can improve teaching effectiveness. A new method, which is to carry out these ideas and organize Problem-Based Learning and Grouping Learning, is given after reconstructing the teaching contents. The result of reform reveals that students' test scores have been greatly improved, the quality and quantity of the completed design work are greatly improved, the number of programming competition awards also increased significantly. In order to make computing thinking deeply rooted, this method may be extended to other important computer basic courses.
