Abstract—With abstract content and complex process relationship in software engineering course, under the traditional classroom teaching method, students find it hard to grasp the core of this subject, let alone apply it in actual software projects. In order to improve the learning outcomes of software engineering, we proposed the theme division and team activity interactive teaching method by which students can truly understand and use the tools, processes and methods of modern software engineering. Based on the content attributes of the software life cycle and each stage, the themes are extracted and constructed. With instructor’s guidance, students carry out team activities, including team form-up, tasks collection, group learning, topic reporting, defense review, and team feedback. The interactive teaching ways between the instructors and the learners promote the latter to actively participate in problem research and discussion, use software engineering principles and methods to solve design, development and management problems in software engineering, and enhance their technique ability and teamwork awareness.

Index Terms—Interactive teaching, software engineering, team activities, theme division.
