The Agile Value Hunt Game in action in our 3rd year UG course unit

As part of our contribution for the Institute of Coding, we are working to package our existing teaching resources for reuse by others providing software engineering education and training. The first of these offerings is now available.

The Agile Value Hunt Game is a coaching game we have developed for use on our third year UG elective course on Agile Software Engineering. The game is used at the start of our workshop on agile approaches to requirements gathering, to help our students focus on understanding and delivering real value for customers.

If you make use of this game in your teaching, and have comments or suggestions for how the game or the instructions could be improved, please do get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
