Muneera Bano

Speaker: Muneera Bano (Swinburne)


Software engineering (SE) discipline is required to produce industry-ready graduates. Therefore, the curricula need to prepare students not only with the current technical knowledge but also with self-learning and soft skills. Software Engineering educationists have been employing combination of learning theories that have their roots in educational philosophies. SE education researchers are assessing innovative pedagogies in multi-disciplinary learning environments. In this talk I will present the results from my recent research within SE education that focused on pedagogical design with 'authentic assessment’ and ‘corrective feedback learning'.

Presenter bio

Dr Muneera Bano has over a decade of experience in academic teaching, research, supervision, and leadership. She graduated with PhD in Software Engineering at University of Technology Sydney in 2015. After graduation she worked as a Post-doctoral researcher and ‘Learning and Teaching Adjunct’ at University of Technology Sydney. Since August 2017, she joined Swinburne University of Technology as a Lecturer of Software Engineering.

Dr Muneera works at the intersection between computers and humans – looking for ways to engineer technology to work better with the people that use it. Dr Muneera specialises in the field of socio-technical domains of software engineering focusing on human-centred technologies. Her recent research areas include: technology assisted pedagogies for education, and requirements analysis.

She contributes to the broader research community as Associate Editor of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Software Journal, Associate Blogger IEEE Software, as Track Chair in International Requirements Engineering, and Australian Software Engineering Conferences; and as a member of the program committee for various highly-ranked conferences including Grace Hopper Conference for Women in Computer Science.

During her research career, Dr Muneera has also received prestigious recognition for her work, including being named as a finalist for ‘Google Australia’s Anita Borg Award for Women in Computer Science’, Asia-Pacific 2015. She was also the recipient of Schlumberger’s Award for Women in STEM (2014 and 2015) and was given the ‘distinguished research paper award’ at International Requirements Engineering Conference held in August 2018. She has been announced as Superstar of STEM for 2019-2020 by Science Technology Australia. Superstars of STEM program aims to smash society’s gender assumptions about scientists and increase the public visibility of women in STEM.
