Co-located with BPM 2019 in Vienna on FRI 6 September 2019 at WU Vienna

The registration for this free event is requried, and the registration list is already closed.

The community meeting will take place in the D2 Building, Entrance C, 1st Floor. Please check the description where to find us here.

The textbook Fundamentals of BPM authored by Dumas, La Rosa, Mendling and Reijers is used at various universites all around the world. The aim of this meeting is to exchange experiences on how to teach these fundamentals. You may wish to participate if you are teaching a course on BPM or are considering offering such a course in the future. Questions to be discussed include the following:

  • How to integrate tools for modeling, simulation and process mining into courses?
  • How to use case studies to illustrate course content?
  • How to teach advanced modeling concerns in BPM?
  • How to design a minor topic or project works in relation to course content?
  • How to balance inductive versus deductive ways of teaching? What are alternative teaching paths through the content?
  • How to teach different student cohorts, like business students, computer science students, etc.?
  • How to better synergize with colleagues who also teach the same contents?

The community meeting will feature an introductory session by the authors of the textbook on how they design their courses. Next will be experience reports by the participants. Furthermore, we wil use a world cafe and breakout sessions for facilitating the further exchange of experiences. The expected outcome of this meeting will be individual lessons learned from experiences of colleagues and new initiatives to foster the community for mutual benefit.
