Enhancing Teaching & Learning of Software Engineering in an International Environment

Emanuel S. Grant ., Washington I. Helps .


A fundamental artifact of any academic research is
the data used as the basis of that research effort. A group of
researchers, from institutions in multiple territories, has
embarked on an ambitious research project that is initially aimed
at enhancing the teaching of software engineering for four-year
undergraduate programs. The research project details a set of
workshops, for which the objective is the capture of data that will
be the basis of the research effort. The first of these workshops
was held in August of 2011, and is reported on in this paper. The
workshop comprised software engineering educators and
representatives from the information technology industry. The
data collection task sought to identify a set of topics that are
considered suitable for teaching software engineering, along with
identification of the years and depth at which these topics should
be taught. The use of technology in the curriculum design process
is seen as an important step forward and this issue is also
