Abstract

Teaching the topics from the field of information system design and development presents a specific challenge for the teacher. It is hard to simulate real-life circumstances of complex information system design and development in educational environment. In this paper we present an educational model in which topics from this field are taught using project-based learning. This method is used continuously during the entire study, through a number of interconnected project assignments. Each assignment presents a phase or activity of information system design or development, and approaches students to real-life problems. We propose to implement this model through several courses in undergraduate and graduate study, because assignments require different levels of maturity and knowledge from students. The model follows a basic idea to give a theoretic overview of information system design and development phases in one course and then to teach each phase and its activities in a separate course in detail. In the basic course on information systems special attention should be focused on digital innovations and on students’ awareness on application of technology to improve business effectiveness.
