Training Course Entitled “How to Create Systematic Mapping Study Papers”

The college of Engineering and Computer Science/Department of Computer Engineering held a training course entitled “How to Create Systematic Mapping Study Papers” from 20 October 2021 to  22 December 2021 (One Session Per Week – Wednesday). On Wednesday, December 22nd, 2021, the last session was held from 12:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The sessions were presented by Assistant Lecturer Hazha Yahia from Information Technology and Assistant Lecturer Teeba Ismail Kh. from Computer Engineering who explained to the trainees the methods mainly in identifying and classifying the existing research papers that report on the utilization of practical experiences in software engineering education. Also, a well-defined method of systematic mapping is used to develop a Systematic Mapping Study in order to make an overall analysis of the research field. And the other eight sessions were presented by assistant lecturer Teeba Ismail, she examined many interesting aspects of a systematic review study and discussed how to write the paper’s conclusion and discussion. There were 20 trainees in attendance, the majority of them were College of Engineering and Computer Science faculty members.
