Free ticketed event
Over the past five years, the presenters have encouraged and supported the use of Scrum in our industry-sponsored senior design capstone. Students are also increasingly exposed to a few key elements of Scrum several times in earlier courses. We will present the key elements of Scrum and our own modification for use in an undergraduate engineering curriculum. This will provide background for participants to engage in a facilitated discussion of how to incorporate elements of Scrum into their own capstones or other project-based courses.
Dr. Alisha L. Sarang-Sieminski
Alisha Sarang-Sieminski is an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering and the Director of SCOPE at Olin College of Engineering. Her interests include how using low-tech, human centered design to cocreate adaptive design solutions, improving engineering culture through working towards equity and inclusion, and best-practices in real-world design capstones.
Dr. Alexandra Coso Strong
