The goal of this BoF is to bring together educators to discuss ideas for curriculums, methods, and pedagogies for teaching software engineering. We are particularly interested in discussing topics related to: teaching software design, integrating real-world projects into courses, and adapting software engineering courses to today’s emerging technologies and cultural norms. The structure of this session will be informal: the full group will meet to discuss shared interests in software engineering education, then split into several round-table discussions, and reconvene at the end of the session to share key insights.
The global pandemic has shown, thanks to advanced software technologies, society and businesses were able to quickly respond to environmental disruptions. Software-intensive businesses had to quickly pivot their business model. Also, demands in software-based service offerings facilitating remote work drastically increased and challenged control modes of prior management practices. These exemplary challenges cannot be tackled by engineering or business disciplines alone. The 5th International Workshop on Software-intensive Business (IWSiB) aims to bring together research communities working on topics relevant to software-intensive business to jointly investigate these challenges and to bridge the gap between different research communities. The workshop will facilitate knowledge exchange through discussions of issues and experiences, to improve research contributions through feedback from the wider community, and to develop new projects between researchers and practitioners. To this end, the workshop will be a mix of research work and industry experience presentations, interactive discussions and group activities, to maximize the potential synergy among the participants from different research and industry backgrounds.
