Group Projects and the Computer Science Curriculum
Joy, Mike
Innovations in Education and Teaching International, v42 n1 p15-25 Feb 2005
Group projects in computer science are normally delivered with reference to good software engineering practice. The discipline of software engineering is rapidly evolving, and the application of the latest 'agile techniques' to group projects causes a potential conflict with constraints imposed by regulating bodies on the computer science curriculum. This paper explores the issues, and argues that there are strong educational reasons for modifying the computer science curriculum to accommodate these new software engineering methodologies.
