Colloquium - Díez Cebollero

The ComBLA Method: The Application of Domain Analysis Principles to the Instructional Engineering Context
Universidad Carlos III de Madrid

Domain Analysis (DA) is a common activity within software engineering conceived to ease reusability and to facilitate the communication among different actors. This methodology allows a priori-scoping of the problem by identifying those elements or areas of interest that determine the development process of domain systems. The ultimate purpose of DA is to treat systems of the domain as a whole that permits the reuse of components and experiences. With the purpose of improving the development of courseware, my PhD Thesis postulates an analysis method based on applying DA principles to the instructional context. In this presentation, I will expose the main characteristics of my research work, the results of applying this methodology to the development of computer-based learning systems, and the enumeration of such drawbacks and shortcoming that I have identified along my PhD Thesis. In addition, I will talk about the research work that would want to tackle during my stay at L3D.

David Díez Cebollero received his PhD in Computer Science (2009) from the Universidad Carlos III of Madrid. He also holds a Computer Science Degree (1998) from the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and a MSc in Computer Science and Technology (2007) from the Universidad Carlos III of Madrid. In addition, David is a Sun Certified Enterprise Architect (SCEA) and has different certifications in software development. David was born in Madrid in 1976. After finishing his higher education, he worked in software development for almost a decade. David worked as a software engineer and project manager for different international software companies. From 2003 to 2005, he was hired as tenured associated teacher by the Computer Science Department at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, synchronizing his professional and academic careers. Finally, in 2005, he enrolled as a teacher assistant in the DEI Laboratory research group at that university. His research interests are technology support for learning systems, teaching programming and Software Engineering. He has just started different investigations about User-Centered Design and Web Development, and their application in Emergency Management Information Systems.
