Educators' Symposium

Ballroom C
Monday, 8:30, 9 hours


Chair: Eugene Wallingford, University of Northern Iowa

Join us at OOPSLA's 13th 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, presentations of nifty assignments for students, demonstrations of novel OO teaching tools, a poster session—and plenty of active sessions where attendees work together to put these ideas into practice.

This year, we are honored and privileged to have as our keynote speaker the 2003 Turing Award winner, Dr. Alan Kay. In his talk, "The Computer Revolution Hasn't Happened Yet!," Dr. Kay will suggest rather different approaches to teaching computer science.

Participation in the Educators' Symposium requires separate registration. Please refer to the registration form.

OOPSLA is again delighted to announce the availability of scholarships for educators from 2- and 4-year colleges to attend the OOPSLA 2004 and the Educators' Symposium. These scholarships are sponsored by the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group on Programming Languages (SIGPLAN). See the Educator Scholarships page for more details.
