Requirements Elicitation & Facilitation


This course teaches students how to elicit, analyze, and communicate requirements for software development projects. Many elicitation techniques rely upon the collaborative work of individuals with diverse backgrounds. Students learn and apply facilitation skills and strategies to get the most out of collaborative requirements definition sessions. Labs allow students to practice and refine elicitation techniques and facilitation skills in groups of various sizes. All labs simulate typical and difficult software requirements situations and issues. Students will apply their acquired skills by facilitating sessions for developing a vision, use case modeling, and drafting and reviewing use case specifications. Students receive instructor and peer feedback throughout the course. This enhances students’ listening skills and provides constructive feedback.
