Gary Pollice is a Professor of Practice, Computer Science at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. He discusses his use of project simulation to bring "Real World Challenges" into an academic setting. While he does not specifically teach Agile Methods in the class, many of the processes and practices that emerge will look shockingly familiar to those of us in the agile community. Plus he has fun with it ... I wish he had been one of my professors so that I could have learned some of the hard lessons in the classroom rather than on the job.
