Abstract

Many engineering students often find a course in less analytical subjects like Information Systems difficult due to the significant proportion of abstract concepts covered. To help the students understand them requires a teaching strategy other than the conventional. This paper discusses the use of a project-oriented course to overcome many of the difficulties of teaching Information Systems to industrial engineering students. In contrast with the usual approach to projects, where each group of students delivers an independent solution, the teaching approach discussed requires that the given class deliver a single, integrated solution.

Baie ingenieurstudente vind 'n kursus met 'n beduidende nie-analitiese komponent moeilik as gevolg van abstrakte konsepte wat behandel word. Die vakgebied van Inligtingstelsels is 'n voorbeeld hiervan. 'n Onderrigstrategie anders as die konvensionele is nodig om studente te help met die begripsproses. Hierdie artikel bespreek die gebruik van 'n projekgebaseerde kursus om sommige van die onderrigprobleme wat ontstaan wanneer Inligtingstelsels aan bedryfsingenieurstudente doseer word, te oorkom. Die onderrigbenadering wat hier bespreek word, vereis dat 'n gegewe klas 'n enkele, geïntegreerde oplossing lewer, in teenstelling met die gewone benadering tot projekte waar studente in groepe werk en 'n onafhanklike oplossing per groep lewer.
