This paper reports on the commencement of a research project into the adoption of agile software development and agile software project management methods and approaches in universities in Thailand. A preliminary survey, by interviews, of 12 universities in Thailand, including some of the universities considered to be in the Top 5 IT universities in Thailand, was undertaken during June, 2007. Interviews with staff, the presentation of seminars and classes to both undergraduate and post-graduate students, as well as academic staff, were undertaken during this period. Survey questionnaires were given to both staff and students, and a website with these questionnaires has been created. Responses to these questionnaires have yet to be received at this early stage of the survey project. This paper narrates some of the experience of the authors in conducting the interviews and seminars, and reports on the 'state of play' in those universities in regard to the adoption of agile software development and agile software project management methods and approaches in curriculum, and the knowledge base of IS / IT and C/S academic staff of this subject matter.

Keywords: agile software development, computer science curriculum, information systems curriculum
