This faculty colloquium targets actors of the IvI education curriculum: primarily teachers, program directors and course coordinators, but also assistants with a direct involvement in future course organization.
The goal of the colloquium is to explore current challenges and opportunities in our core curricula, around a specific theme: "project-based curricula". This is a possible organization which uses a single, large "practical" assignment for students around which two or more courses are grafted to form a curriculum.
During the colloquium, participants are encouraged to form their own answers to the following questions:
- Can we, and should we, develop a common SE project for students shared between separate courses?
- What are the challenges and opportunities?
- Are there specific circumstances at UvA for or against this type of organization?
The expected outcome of the discussion will be a white paper which will summarize the faculty's position on this topic, and possibly concrete project plans to further evolve the UvA education program.
The colloquium will open with a presentation from an external speaker: dr. ir. Akim Demaille. Akim will share his experiences with us during that day. Akim is a CS lecturer (15+years exp), an experienced software engineer (20+y exp) and also researcher in formal automata theory and compiler construction. In the last 15 years, he has driven a compiler construction project at EPITA that serves as backbone for multiple separate courses: software engineering, automata theory, compiler construction, object-oriented programming and C++ programming.
