Workshop

17 Extreme Programming Practices in the First CS Courses

Sunday, 26 October – 8:30-12:00 Morning

Most of the practices of Extreme Programming are beneficial to students in their computer science courses. But in order to teach students properly, pedagogical changes are needed as early as CS1. This workshop seeks participants who have significant ideas for changes that can be made in early computer science courses that involve integrating any of the practices of Extreme Programming or other agile methodologies.

Would-be participants should send in a short position paper outlining one or two ideas they have. During the workshop, participants will critically discuss the ideas that have been suggested and explore any new ones that arise. Participants will agree to allow their ideas to be shared via a web page to be posted in various CS educational resources repositories.
