Abstract: A major challenge for software engineering is to coordinate many individuals, whose work is heavily depending on each other. This enormous complexity often results in error-prone products. Minor mistakes can already have major side-effects impacting the entire software product. For individuals, the challenge is to focus on their own tasks, however, obeying certain design principles and without losing sight of the overall target. Therefore, we argue that software engineering is a highly collaborative process. However, we lack knowledge in general how to collaborate successfully. Consequently, there is still a lot of potential for teaching and improving collaboration in software engineering education.
