"Business and IT" Programme Director

About Me

Currently, I work as the Programme Director of the "Business & IT" Programme (B.Sc. & M.Sc.). I am allotted to the "Semantics, Service, and CyberSecurity (SCS)" group at the University of Twente.  

My teaching experience includes courses in Computer Programming and Software Engineering related topics (Brazil, 2014-2016; Italy, 2017-2020). It includes Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) topics, especially those related to Ubiquitous Computing and Wearables (2016-2017, Brazil). I earned a Doctor of Sciences (D.Sc.) degree in Computer Science with the thesis dissertation entitled “Wearables for Supporting Spatial Representation by Blind Persons” at Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio, Dec. 2014). I earned a Master of Sciences (M.Sc.) degree from the Federal University of the State of Rio de Janeiro (UNIRIO, 2010), with a dissertation concerning computer support for improving educational group activities (CSCW and CSCL fields). 

Since 2008 I have worked with non-traditional pedagogical approaches for teaching computer science topics, with particular emphasis on non-STEM students. From 2008-2014 I used mainly Project-Based Learning (PBL), although we experimented with other methods. From 2014 to 2020, at the Apple Developer Academy (both Brazil and Italy), I worked with Challenge-Based Learning (CBL).
