eduScrum maakt studenten nieuwsgieriger

Bij ICA is als onderdeel van een project van “Faculteit Techniek onderzoekt” een pilot uitgevoerd met eduScrum. Waar Scrum al jaren gebruikt wordt als projectaanpak binnen en buiten de ICT bleek het ook erg geschikt om les mee te geven. Het leidde in de pilot tot nieuwsgierigere studenten die kritischer waren op hun eigen werk. Lees meer overeduScrum maakt studenten nieuwsgieriger[…]

Since we started the research project about eduScrum we did a few presentations and there are more to come. Most of the presentations are in Dutch, but I can translate some parts when necessary.

Stop pushing and start burning books

One of the things I love about having kids is that they show a unique mix of the DNA of both the parents. My daugther combines my wife’s discipline with my positivity and self confidence and is doing more than OK in high school.  My son shares my talent for math and numbers and my wife’s ability to Lees meer overStop pushing and start burning books[…]

Applying agile principles and tools to the eduScrum research project

In my experience, most research projects tend to follow a linear (waterfall-like) approach. Since the time we started the eduScrum research project we decided to “eat our own dogfood” as much as possible. Our own process is based on fast and continous delivery and minimizing cycle time. We shortly tried Scrum but didn’t like the timeboxes Lees meer overApplying agile principles and tools to the eduScrum research project[…]

eduScrum onderzoeksproject

Enkele weken geleden kregen we groen licht voor een onderzoeksvoorstel over eduScrum. We werken ongeveer 10 jaar met Scrum in softwareontwikkelingsprojecten en hebben altijd het gevoel gehad dat het Scrum framework ook bruikbaar was in een niet-ICT-context. Zo ben ik het framework gaan gebruiken om mijn 10-jarige zoon te helpen met begrijpend lezen (daarover in Lees meer overeduScrum onderzoeksproject[…]

eduScrum research project

A few weeks ago lights went green for a research proposal on eduScrum.
