I would like to start by introducing myself. I'm a Software Engineering lecturer in the Software Engineering department of the Rochester Institute of Technology.  I've been teaching either as an adjunct or a lecturer for 4 years, and I am having a blast.  This past summer, though I had the opportunity to travel the world, I couldn't wait to get back and try some of the new concepts and ideas I had dreamed up or come across in the previous year. This collection of articles will be the output of that passion: Ideas for the classroom, personal findings, excerpts from academic publications, and lessons and activities used in the classroom.  Inspiration will come from many places (hopefully): things I have tried, subjects related to the discipline, and other's work. My goal is to post as ideas develop, are tried, or come across my eyes.  Hopefully you can use some of what you see here to your or your students' benefit.
