    Abstract

    This paper examines the outcomes of teaching a course in Software Testing in Ireland and China over a two-year period. In both institutions the delivery of the course is constrained to two-week duration. The learning objectives for this course are explained. The outcomes of the courses in terms of student learning are compared and analyzed. A number of observations are made that lead to recommendations as to how the educational experience can be improved for the students in both countries.
