A lightweight collaborative approach for teaching software project labs with industry partners


Software project labs are an important part of computer science education. In 2014, we started to run labs together with industry partners to implement further learning objectives. In this article, we present these learning objectives and our organizational approach to realize a joint lightweight teaching with an industry partner. Furthermore, we report on our experiences with this approach, including the students’ point of view. Finally, we discuss what we adapted to conduct our software project lab online during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The paper will be published in the 3rd Software Engineering Education Workshop (SEED 2020).
