Abstract

The goal of this ongoing study is to understand how the development of soft skills is approached in the existing computer science and software engineering curricula. Based on the findings and improvement opportunities, we propose a high-level course structure to be used as a framework for those higher education organizations who want to support the development of students technical and non-technical skills. With this proposal, we believe computer science and software engineering students would be better prepared for the most recent IT market requirements, fostering the development of the 21st century’s main competencies. In order to develop the course structure presented in this study, we conducted a literature research, which showed the development of students’ soft skills still requires improvement and more efficient approaches. Our solution proposal combines DevOps, Scrum and Challenge Based Learning approaches into one single course, which uses Agile DevOps culture and values, along with continuous feedback, to promote students’ soft skills development.
