The Bologna process has triggered curricula redesigning in most of the Universities all over Europe in order to adapt them to the Bologna directives. The new curricula are focused on the development of traverse and specific competences rather than a fixed body of knowledge. The students are not anymore passive subjects but the main actors of their learning process. In this new approach it is considered a holistic view of the student competencies and skills. This needs new educational methodologies for the teaching-learning process. The aim of this paper is to analyze how the different learning methodologies can be used in information systems subjects in the studies of management and public administration.
Information system management is a difficult field for structured research and systematic knowledge improvement, and in consequence, a difficult field to learn and teach. This difficulty comes from the combination of two knowledge areas, one technical, informatics, and the other social, management. The study presented here analyzes the learning methodologies best suited to teaching this field in higher education. This work assesses how to meet the challenge of motivating students and teaching information systems in a business school, through an interdisciplinary subject between informatics and business administration. The study analyses how active learning methodologies, such as PBL and the case method can be applied effectively in these subjects.
