Serious Games applied to teaching in Software Engineering

On November 21-22 2019 we are hosting at Complutense University of Madrid the second IMPRESS Project Multiplier event. The main objective of this event it is to show the ongoing progress of the project to other teachers / practitioners, that are interested in how to apply serious games and other gamification techniques in order to increase student engagement and motivation regarding two Software Engineering specific topics: software testing and formalization.

On the afternoon of the 21st, we will host a demo / hands-on-lab session of FormalZ (+Analytics) and CodeDefenders with students. The agenda is:
