Abstract: Establishing interactive learning settings in higher education requires more learner-centric teaching methods. Therefore, one possible approach is learning by teaching. However, its application has only sparsely been studied for the business information systems (BIS) development domain so far. In this paper, the feasibility of the method for teaching BIS development topics is evaluated by means of a teaching experiment, comparing its application in four different undergraduate courses at two universities. We conducted a survey to investigate students’ perception and evaluated selected results of the exam to assess the actual effectiveness of the method. Results indicate that the method is perceived as appropriate to gain knowledge in general. While preparing a subject on their own was perceived as useful for a better understanding, the students’ presentations were not considered an improvement over a traditional lecture. However, no negative impacts on the learning outcomes were observed.
