I am a lecturer of the Services and CyberSecurity (SCS) group of the University of Twente. I have experience in teaching Computer Programming and Software Engineering topics (Brazil, 2014-2016; Italy, 2017-2020). I also taught Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) topics, especially those related to Ubiquitous Computing and Wearables (2016-2017, Brazil).
I earned the 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 the Master of Sciences (M.Sc.) degree by 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 work 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).
