Miranda to Give Talk at CMU Teaching Summit

Dr. Eduardo Miranda, Assoc. Teaching Professor in the MSE, will deliver a lightning talk at the Carnegie Mellon Teaching & Learning Summit, November 1st from 12:30 - 4:30pm.

Hosted by the CMU Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence & Educational Innovation, the summit serves as a celebration and showcase of the many exciting ideas and evidence-based approaches to teaching and learning that university faculty are applying in their own courses at CMU and beyond.

Miranda’s talk, entitled “Teaching Agile Project Management by Combining Group Interactions and Simulation”, will present a simulation based exercise used to teach students how to run an agile software development project.

Miranda notes that “The simulation approach allows the instructor to present and address in a class setting situations that in a real project would take weeks or months to develop and thus offers a richer, more engaging experience than the toy projects traditionally used in these courses or the pure case based analysis where the student does not see the results of the recommendations it makes.”

The Summit will take place November 1st, 2018 from 12:30 - 4:30 pm in the Cohen University Center. Dr. Miranda’s talk will occur between 12:30 - 1:30 pm.
