The Study on Case-Driven Methodology to Teach Software Engineering in Graduate Education


This paper discusses the reform of teaching contents, teaching model, teaching method of software engineering courses, and assesses the effects of a series of reform measures and programs. It formed a case-driven methodology to teach software engineering. The teaching practice undertaken by Northeast Petroleum University has shown that the methodology provides graduate students with the opportunities to experience the realistic software engineering problems and environments, and then effectively raise their interest in learning.
