Interview: Teaching Software Engineers at Michigan Tech

Logo for Michigan Tech

Tim and Tom discuss the Speaking of Software project at Michigan Tech and interview professors Chuck Wallace, Bob Johnson, and Ann Brady about improving the training of software engineers at the undergraduate level. If you’re an educator or industry professional curious about innovations in teaching software engineering, this episode is for you.

Before you listen to the interview, we encourage you to read the article as published in Technical Communication, Volume 53, Number 3, August 2006, pp. 317-325. Unfortunately, as of this writing the Society for Technical Communication does not sell this article online. If you do not subscribe to the journal, check a local college library.
