Do you work in the software industry? Are you interested in sharing your knowledge and experience with up-and-coming members of your field? Do you want to influence the way academics teach and conduct research? If so, then please fill out this survey.
To learn the details of why I am interviewing you through this survey, I encourage you to read the introduction to the SEED project. In a nutshell, the SEED project's aim is to enable both aspiring members of the software industry and the academics who teach them to receive advice from those who are already a part of this exciting field.
In addition to requesting your biographical information, the SEED survey only asks you to answer three questions, requiring perhaps one or two paragraphs for each response. While the time that you invest in this survey will be minimal, I anticipate that students will greatly benefit from the advice that you share.
After you complete this survey, I will copy-edit your responses and publish them on my blog, enabling me to incorporate your advice into the teaching of my courses and my research with students. At the start of 2018, I will release a retrospective in which I report on the key lessons taught by all of the interviewees and make suggestions for ways in which educators like me can improve their teaching and research.
Please contact me with any questions or comments that you have about this initiative.
