Reshaping ICT industry projects in 3 years

Shi, Hao (2006) Reshaping ICT industry projects in 3 years. In: 10th Australian Women in IT Conference, 4-5 Dec 2006, Adelaide, South Australia.


This paper documented my last three years experience as the ICT Industry Projects coordinator at School of Computer Science and Mathematics, Victoria University. My journey started in March 2003 when I was recruited by the School and appointed as the coordinator. Due to the complexity of the existing subject structure, the Industry Projects remained the most challenging subject in the school despite of many efforts and good wills. I have completely reshaped the two project subjects and transferred them to be one of the seven project models in "Learning in Workplace" at Victoria University. The breakthrough finally arrived after the launch of the University Learning in Workplace policy and Victorian Government pilot programs. The first engagement with our industry partner marked the new era for the Industry Projects. My discussion has shown that gender doesn't play any role in the success of their Industry Projects but the appreciation from female students towards male students is importance as it is often the key to solve the team conflicts.
