Barnes, Sue and Kuzma, Joanne (2009) Empirical Study in Teaching First-Year Database Students. In: 7th International Workshop on Teaching, Learning and Assessment of Databases, 6 July 2009, University of Birmingham.
This paper describes the authors’ experience in team teaching two occurrences of a first-level undergraduate ‘Database Applications’ module. An analysis of the two occurrences revealed a difference in attendance, marks, seminar participation and attitude. This paper attempts to identify some reasons for this difference as well as reviewing some of the teaching activities that were used in this module. It analyzes the success of these activities and the perception and feedback from each group of students, and some possible recommended changes to the module.
