Teaching reconfigurable computing to computer science students demands special attention due to limited student experience in electronics and digital system design. This paper presents a compact course on reconfigurable processors, which was offered at the Technische Universität Darmstadt, and is intended for instructors aiming to introduce a new course in reconfigurable computing. In contrast to courses on digital system design, which use FPGAs as a case platform, our course places this platform at the centre of its focus and highlights its features as a basis for reconfigurable computing.
