Bringing Life to the Classroom: Engaging Students through the Integration of HCI in SE Projects

Milene Silveira, Alessandra Dutra

Abstract

Integration is a key aspect of teaching and learning processes. Integrating theory and practice based on knowledge from different courses and even from different programs is fundamental and strategic so that students can better understand not only their specific fields of study and work but also their relationship within research and market contexts. This study aims at presenting integration experiences between theory and practice from a Software Engineering Program. We focus on the application of methods studied in a course from the Human-Computer Interaction area in courses of software development practices, through projects involving real clients, developed by the students themselves. We discuss the lessons learned, challenges, and perspectives of change in those involved courses, bringing the students’ opinions, who have highlighted, among other points, the importance of such integration to bring theory closer to their real universe of action.
