Abstract

Teaching advanced database subjects such as database administration within a university environment traditionally has many challenges; however, the modern world of big data and engineered database systems, as well as increased pressure on universities to enhance graduates’ employability creates new sets of demands on delivering and assessing learning in both practical and theoretical aspects of database administration courses. This paper discusses the issues involved in teaching Oracle database administration courses for postgraduate students in the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Greenwich. The paper offers various solutions and innovative teaching methods that have proved to be successful in addressing modern industry requirements.
