Teaching Agile is a very challenging task, especially if you address the core Agile principles and values – the Agile mindset!

The Agile in Education and Training track provides a forum for those with a vested interest in Agile education and training. We want to share ideas and experiences for translating methods, practices, and theory into trainings, courses, curricula, and mentoring programs.

We will concentrate on how we teach Agile concepts – to students in academic learning environments and to practitioners on the ground, as well as how we can apply our knowledge of Agile and Lean to developing these learning experiences.

We are looking for papers, talks, and activities on techniques and experiences for teaching and training with a special focus on (but not limited to) Teaching Agile, Scaling Agile, DevOps, and Culture and Mindset.

We welcome thoughtful participants interested in teaching and learning. We would like a mix of short talks, interactive sessions, and discussions. We want to learn from your experiences and develop new ideas. From university professors, to industrial coaches, to learning organizations – please propose something that helps us learn how to teach (and learn) Agile concepts in better ways, or just come and add to the conversation.

Submissions

We invite proposals of structured sessions (e.g. short talks, experience reports, tool demos, goldfish bowls) to mix with workshop and discussion sessions. Proposals should address educational challenges in Agile that could foster good discussion, such as topics that are hard to teach, techniques and schemes for teaching principles and practices effectively, questions about how to assess certain forms of Agile learning, learning through online tools, and more.

Proposals will be evaluated based on these criteria:

  • Relevance to educators
  • Relevance to practitioners
  • Likelihood of starting a discussion
  • Being something interesting and new, not something boring and established

Proposals must be submitted electronically via EasyChair.

Post-Conference Proceedings

Those interested in a publication can submit a short-paper submission in the form of a research paper or an experience report (max. 8 pages) after the conference. These submissions will be peer-reviewed and must conform to the LNBIP formatting and submission instructions. See the instructions for authors here. Accepted papers will be published in the post-conference proceedings.
