Teaching Computer Networks: Theory and Problem Solving

Atila Bostan
Abstract—Teaching data communication and networks is one of the challenging tasks in information systems education. It should include a good deal of theoretical and practical education mutually. Students frequently encounter with new applications and networking problems in their ever day practices. Introducing network diagnostic tools and experiencing problem solving in computer networks should be significant components of network education. In this study we have presented the results of an educational methodology change in teaching data communication and networks course. Students are forced to solve more problems and have more hands on practices. The findings point to a better educational achievement when compared with the previous teaching methodology.

Index Terms—Data communication and network education, educational methodology, problem-based learning.
