Abstract

The dynamism of the global economy and its growing dependence on Information Technology, more complex and integrated, has required a transformation in the education of software professionals with the focus on the development of skills such as teamwork, real practice of problem-solving, managerial profile and analysis of solutions. In this context, the Problem-Based Learning (PBL) approach falls as a glove for the training of professionals in these competencies. From this motivation, this paper describes the application of the PBL approach in an Information Systems course. Aiming the effectiveness of this approach, the Framework described in (Santos and Rodrigues, 2016) was applied, which proposes tools for the planning, execution, monitoring, and improvements of PBL. The results showed the suitability of the Framework for this purpose, describing how it was applied and how the PBL can be managed, besides emphasizing main benefits and improvement points from this application.
