Educators Symposium

Date of Symposium: Monday, October 3, 2005

Model-driven development approaches and technologies for software-based systems, in which development is centered round the manipulation of models, raise the level of abstraction and thus, improve our abilities to develop complex systems. Therefore, a number of approaches and tools have been proposed for the model-driven development (MDD) of software-based systems. Examples are UML, model-driven architecture (MDA), and model-integrated computing (MIC).

Putting the model-driven development vision into practice requires not only sophisticated modeling approaches and tools, but also considerable training and education efforts. To make people ready for model-driven development, its principles and applications need to be taught to practitioners in industry, incorporated in university curricula, and probably even introduced in schools.

The educator's symposium at the MoDELS conference, the premier conference devoted to the topic of model-driven engineering of software-based systems, is intended as a forum in which educators and trainers can meet to discuss pedagogy, use of technology in the classroom, and share their experience pertaining to teaching modeling techniques and model-driven development.
