Description

This study reports implementation of an Agile teaching framework in two IT project management courses; the framework was created based on two Agile methodologies, Scrum and Kanban. The goals of this framework were to inspire a proactive learning approach in students, increase learner autonomy and accountability, and enhance collaboration among students. The courses were divided into two 6-week learning periods. During the first period, students followed a Scrum approach to learning and were given a learning backlog to be completed over three, 2-week learning sprints. In the 2nd period, a Kanban approach was followed, teams defined, teams rotated the role of "LearningMaster," and chose the pace at which they completed the learning goals. Surveys conducted at the end of the semester indicated that students perceived enhanced intrinsic motivation for learning and higher levels of satisfaction with learning process, perceived autonomy, purpose, and mastery of the topics discussed in the course.
