"Educators' Symposium"

 : Monday

Educators' Symposium

San Diego Room
Monday, 8:30, 9 hours



Chair: Eugene Wallingford, University of Northern Iowa

Join us at OOPSLA's 14th forum for object-oriented educators and trainers! This one-day symposium offers a venue for educators and trainers to share their experiences teaching object-oriented technology and to explore ideas that can help us understand and teach OO technology better.

This year's symposium offers new ideas for addressing the problems faced by OO educators. We will have presentations of teaching ideas, demonstrations of OO teaching tools, a poster session—and plenty of active sessions in which attendees work together to put these ideas into practice.

This year, we are honored to have as our keynote speaker Ward Cunningham. Ward has pioneered many of the ideas and tools we all use today: object-oriented programming, CRC cards, patterns, wiki, extreme programming, test-first design, and FIT. In his talk, Ward will offer some advice for how we can recognize good ideas in their humility, how to nurture good ideas to fruition, and how we might teach these skills in our courses.

OOPSLA is again delighted to announce the availability of scholarships for educators from 2- and 4-year colleges to attend the OOPSLA 2005 and the Educators' Symposium. These scholarships are sponsored by the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group on Programming Languages (SIGPLAN). For more information, see the Educator Scholarship page.
