Abstract: Task-based Programming Learning (TBPL) is an approach which is based on ideas of Task-based Language Learning in second language acquisition. It can use output-prompting and input-providing tasks. This paper describes the theoretical background and methodical aspects of the input-providing TBPL variant and its implementation in higher education courses. The approach was implemented and evaluated in five different programming courses from both students (N=165) and lecturers (N=4). It became clear that the TBPL-approach has several positive aspects and that it can serve as a valuable instrument for learning and teaching programming in higher education.
