A Trial for Education on the Upper Portion of the Design Process for Information Systems
Search this Article
In the field of information systems (IS) design, the upper portion of the design process (upper process), which maps business structures into information systems, is growing in importance. In spite of that situation, it is difficult to develop human resources to design the upper process. One reason might be that this field requires the capabilities of abstraction and modeling, abilities that may be difficult to learn through traditional lecture-type education. On the other hand, applying PBL (Project-based Learning) to the field of information systems educations is attracting attention, though it is a relatively new and challenging methodology. PBL is a teaching technique that lets students internalize competencies in problem solving through doing actual projects of related activities. In this report, we try to incorporate the concepts and methodologies included in PBL into the course of advanced exercises in a professional school, to clarify the major issues. We can get some idea of the way PBL works through the course.
