Practical aspects of project-based learning in the study of the discipline “Developing information systems”

2020. No. 1 Vol.14. P. 51–61 [issue contents]

      Analysis of modern publications dealing with project-based learning at the university has shown that they can be divided into two parts. The first part is devoted to theoretical and methodological issues and its authors are mainly pedagogical specialists. The second part is concrete examples of the application of the indicated teaching technology in various subject areas, including technical specialties. The literature also presents applications on the organizational and technological aspects of introducing project-based learning in the educational process at the university. The authors of the second part are teachers of specialized disciplines in the corresponding field of study (medicine, technology, creativity, economics, etc.). This article provides an example of the use of elements of project-based education as early as in Soviet higher education when teaching students with a specialization in “Information Technology” and their projection on a modern educational platform. The purpose of the study is to consider individual methodological issues and practical recommendations for applying the project method for students of study profiles related to the study of disciplines focused on information systems (IS) design. The result of the study is to focus on the possibility of introducing project-based training within an interdisciplinary nature, in particular, the participation of students studying in economic specialties in projects for the creation of functional IS. Advice is given on the distribution of the roles of students and their functions in a team working on a project.
