The Software Testing Education workshop (TestEd 2024) will aim to identify and promote best practices in software testing education, including curriculum design, inclusivity, engagement, and industrial relevance. TestEd will feature different types of sessions and invite submissions at all educational levels.
TestEd 2024 will focus on knowledge diffusion. The research community has created enormous amounts of knowledge for testing software, yet many professional software engineers have little of this knowledge. This is despite the fact that testing is crucial to the success of all types of modern software products. On the other hand, the gap between software testing academia and industry demands/trends has not been narrowed. We will specifically focus on two goals. First, how can we teach more testing within computing degrees? Second, how can we better teach the knowledge and skills of software testing? We will also touch on the impact of generative AI as well as ways to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the software testing community. Many members of the ICST community teach software testing at their universities. This workshop will give an opportunity for those who teach testing to share their ideas, for those in the industry to share their experiences and demands, and for us all to learn more about teaching software testing.
