Chair: Helen Sharp
The Educators' Symposium provides a forum for object-oriented educators, both academic professors and industrial trainers, to meet and exchange ideas, experiences and resources. We have a programme of submitted posters and papers, which is set out below, but all attendees are encouraged to bring along their ideas and challenges, to pin them up alongside the posters, and to share their insights, frustrations and solutions with other attendees. You'll see that there is an hour put aside for viewing and discussing ideas displayed as posters, so there's plenty of time to obtain feedback. We will also hear reports from other conferences, workshops and projects related to object-oriented education that have happened throughout the year. But don't think you'll just be sitting back and listening. There are activities for you to join in with: a design review, and an invited session exploring activities to help you teach design patterns! We'll also be expanding your horizons by re-examining the way use cases are used and taught, and whether OO education has failed, and if so why? Please come and join us for a stimulating and thought-provoking day, in the best tradition of OOPSLA.
Participation in the Educators' Symposium requires separate registration. Please refer to the registration form.
