Teaching A Database Systems Design Course: Is It Theory Or Practice?
Faculty who teach courses in database systems design are constantly challenged to identify and find the proper mix of theory and practice to be presented in such a course. There is a widespread recognition among information technology educators and industry practitioners that a course in database systems design is considered to be an essential component to any academic curricula in both Information Systems and Computer Science. This paper describes the challenges of identifying and selecting the proper mix of theory and application materials of a database systems design course.
