On June 17th, 2014, a colloquium took place between members of the teaching staff of the Institute for Informatics of the University of Amsterdam. The goal of this colloquium was to explore new or different ways to structure teaching in Informatics (Computer Science) using student projects.
Clear motivations and opportunities have been identified to link existing courses in the UvA portfolio around common student projects. Most Informatics teachers have committed to self-organize in this direction, at least by coordinated refactoring. Organic integration, where different courses provide "modules" that can be subsequently reused by an overarching student project, will be also explored.
