Advanced and Distributed Databases (ADD) is a final year core unit for Computing students in the Technology School at Southampton Solent University. It takes a thematic approach to promoting advanced database knowledge and development skills. Topics on data mining and warehousing are not new to TLAD workshops, where there has been coverage either through existing database teaching or stand-alone units. This paper presents some innovative practice and distinctive features of the ADD unit, with a focus on research-informed teaching and enterprise-motivated learning across corresponding data mining and data warehousing themes. The paper draws to a conclusion by highlighting database employability skills graphically in a ?big picture?.
