Paired Programming: Maybe there's something to this...

Tuesday, December 11, 2007 4:06 AM

I'm teaching an ASP.NET course for a local university's continuing education department, and its going really well. One thing I introduced yesterday was the idea of paired programming for going through in-class examples and exercises and it worked out very well!

It was interesting to see paired programming in action, even if it was a microcosm for what goes on in the real world. The students didn't mind either, and it actually sparked more discussion about how to structure certain code pieces or debugging different errors.

If you're doing any sort of training, consider adding a few paired sessions into the mix and see if it can help your students in their learning.
