First Database Course--Keeping It All Organized
Baugh, Jeanne M.
Information Systems Education Journal, v13 n3 p24-33 May 2015
All Computer Information Systems programs require a database course for their majors. This paper describes an approach to such a course in which real world examples, both design projects and actual database application projects are incorporated throughout the semester. Students are expected to apply the traditional database concepts to actual database storage problems. The design of the database is emphasized and students evaluate each other's design as well as their final database project. The details of a database written by the Author to organize all information surrounding the student's project are also presented. In this database course, the students are able to follow the progress of their fellow students during the course. Student's evaluations of each other's work during the semester is shown to be beneficial in the learning process.
