Thought this might be an interesting opportunity for some of our  
projects...

> A hello to all at this list!

> We are currently piloting an “open” approach for the course  
> “Introduction to Software Engineering” (ISE) at Aristotle University  
> in Greece, aimed at bringing together Aristotle students, students  
> from fellow universities, open source practitioners and anyone else  
> interested in SE.
>
> To facilitate the students entrance to open source projects we are  
> now trying to organize some live events for Jan / Feb 2008 (chats,  
> video sessions or pod casts at ustream) that would introduce the  
> students to some aspects relevant to working in open source  
> environments.
>
> Therefore I wondered if anyone here might be interested in chairing  
> one of those live events and to talk (A) about a open source project  
> he/she is engaged at and provide some information on experiences and  
> challenges, ways to contribute to it, etc and (B) about a more  
> generic topic relevant for “newbies” (e.g. “understanding the code”,  
> etc).
>
> For this ISE course we set up an experimental open learning space (http://www.netgeners.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=39&Itemid=92 
> ) to facilitate the students work and to provide a central meeting  
> point for the different stakeholders.
>
> What we would like to achieve with this is to bring together open  
> source development & software engineering education – means to  
> create a win / win scenario by allowing students to gain practical  
> skills (plus some soft skills) meanwhile contributing to an open  
> source project.
>
> The ISE course has app. 160 students per semester and the students  
> are supposed to carry out a project work within a open source  
> project, contributing to this open source project in one out of  
> three ways: 1. to identify (and fix) bugs, 2. to contribute to the  
> code, or 3. to draft / improve the requirement specification  
> documentation.
>
> In the case you would know people from other open source projects  
> that might also be interested in chairing a live event I would be  
> glad if you could circulate this mail.
>
> Hope someone here might find this of interest!
>
> Tips or hints to similar initiatives are more than welcome!
