Learning by Design: Making the Case for a Teaching Strategy to Teach Information Systems Courses

  • Teaching Information Systems in the undergraduate level requires certain skills to integrate theory with practice. One of the most effective teaching pedagogies is “Learning by Design” in which learners are fully engaged in the construction and the execution of the course activities. In the experience presented in this paper, “Learning by Design” helped students of Information Systems to understand very complex Decision Support Systems concepts. Students studied the typical academic advising process and developed a decision support tool for effective academic advising to support institutional planning and optimized resource allocation. Analysis of students’ performance and assessment evidence shows students understanding of course concepts. The successful transfer of knowledge from the theory base of the course to the completion of the final course project will make a case for the use of Learning by Design as a teaching tool in an Information Systems course.
