Teaching NLP at CMU

In spring 2015 I co-taught Carnegie Mellon University's 11-411/611 Natural Language Processing with Chris Dyer and Alan Black.

The course included a semester-long project to build question answering and question generation systems that operate on Wikipedia articles. Students worked in small teams of three to five, and they competed to produce the best-performing systems. You can watch the final reports from the top three teams below.

I can provide a statement of teaching philosophy and teaching references upon request.
