In this open forum, Susan Elliot Sim will be leading a series of discussions on how to most effectively teach Agile values and practices to university students. Susan is currently teaching an introduction to software engineering course that covers many Agile techniques and she’s looking for feedback from the local community on which practices to focus on and how to deal with students who are hesitant to buy into the Agile values. For practitioners this will be an opportunity to contribute to the local community by helping to guide the instruction of up and coming software professionals. For those of you who are new to Agile, this session will be a great way to learn about basic Agile concepts and more advanced topics.
Susan Elliott Sim is a Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at University of Toronto and a Principal at Many Roads Studios. Previously, she was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Informatics at University of California, Irvine. Her primary research area is empirical software engineering, with particular attention to source code searching on the web and software process for small companies.
