Computer Science and Engineering: Learning to Work in International and Multicultural Teams

Alberto Fernández-Bravo, Ignacio García-Juliá, Olga Peñalba

Abstract

The world today is a global world. This means that our students, the professionals of the future, should be able to cooperate and work together with people from other countries, with other languages and cultures. And that implies much more than being proficient in English or other foreign languages, it implies developing a high level of international and intercultural skills. To do so, new activities and approaches should be incorporated into the official curricula of higher education institutions. In this paper, we show an initiative carried out as part of the Software Engineering course, consisting of an international project developed in teams made up of Dutch students from The Hague University of Applied Sciences and Spanish students from Universidad Francisco de Vitoria. Scrum is the paradigm chosen for the development and monitoring of the project, which has been developed using online collaborative tools.
