Collin McMillan, associate professor of computer science and engineering at the University of Notre Dame, has been named the 2019 Outstanding Teacher of the Year by the Illinois/Indiana section of the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE). The award recognizes an engineering educator for excellence in classroom performance and contributions to the scholarship of teaching.
McMillan’s research interests are at the intersection of software engineering and natural language processing. In 2015, he developed a unique collaborative software engineering education program that involves Notre Dame undergraduates, graduate students, and students at the Illinois School for the Visually Impaired (ISVI) and the Indiana School for the Blind.
McMillan first engaged with ISVI as part of his research related to his 2015 National Science Foundation Early Career Development award project titled “Understanding Program Comprehension for Automated Software Documentation Generation.”
