Project-based Learning for Software Engineering–An Implementation Framework
Keywords:Agile, Internet of Things, Project-based Learning, Scrum,
AbstractThe ruling pedagogy for software engineering education still remains “chalk and talk” even though it has many drawbacks leading to its unproductiveness. In recent years, many researches were conducted to propose a systematic teaching and learning method to prepare students with good project management, verbal and written communication skills before facing the real working life. Particularly, teaching in this era of Internet of Things requires a good pedagogical method to ensure that the teaching and learning focus on both theory as well as experiential learning. Thus, in this paper, we propose a framework based on the project-based learning for software engineering subject that focuses on understanding common knowledge as well as the ability to develop real life product.
