Blending Teaching Mode for Computer Courses in the Background of Emerging Engineering Education: A Case Study of Principle and Application of Database

Xiangming An, Chengliang Qu


This study highlights the creation of a curriculum system and teaching mode that adapts to the information era. According to an analysis of the shortages of traditional teaching mode for the course Principle and Application of Database and the status of teaching, a blending teaching mode design in the background of emerging engineering education, a case-driven reversal experimental teaching technique, and an assessment mechanism formulated in accordance with an analytic hierarchy process (AHP) are proposed. Relevant teaching activities are designed in detail. The new teaching mode considers the learning initiatives of students and individual acceptance differences. Assessment results and feedback from the data analysis of online investigation indicate that the improved teaching mode enhances teaching quality effectively. Moreover, the annual average growth of performance proportion that is better than “good” is 13% in the recent three years. Finally, the acceptability and satisfaction rates of students are higher than 90%.
