Service Learning and Teaching Foundry: A Virtual SOA/BPM Learning and Teaching Community
With the growing presence of BPM and SOA in the IT industry, their impact on the IT education will be profound. Many institutions are becoming aware of the acute need of developing learning and teaching resource frameworks for the BPM and SOA. In this paper, the authors present part of such an effort from a team at the University of New South Wales, currently developing Service Learning and Teaching Foundry as a dedicated virtual teaching and learning space for BPM/SOA. They present the motivation, design and current implementation of the foundry, as well as a curriculum design of a Service Technologies module which is used to pilot the foundry system.
