Becoming Agile using Service Learning in the Software Engineering Course

Brian Hanks
2007 AGILE 2007 (AGILE 2007)  
This experience report describes a three year journey toward agility in a software engineering course.  ...  A more agile approach was taken the second year, but there were still failing projects. In the third year a highly agile approach based on short iterations and user stories was used.  ...  In the computer science curriculum, the software engineering course is a natural place to include service-learning because of its project-based focus and emphasis on the complete software development lifecycle  ...

Integrating Agile Practices into Software Engineering Courses

Gregory W. Hislop, Michael J. Lutz, J. Fernando Naveda, W. Michael McCracken, Nancy R. Mead, Laurie A. Williams
2002 Computer Science Education  
It is quite likely that the software industry will find that specific project characteristics will determine the prudence of using an agile or a plan-driven methodology -or a hybrid of the two.  ...  Educators must assess the value and applicability of these emerging agile practices and decide what role they have in software engineering curricula.  ...  IMPLICATIONS FOR SOFTWARE ENGINEERING COURSES The constant effort required to keep software engineering courses current is complicated by the uncertain value of new technologies.  ...
