The call for new teaching strategies in information and management education has been ongoing. It's call is that the purpose of information-based management education should be not to give learners knowledge of information technology, but to enhance information use capability. Information and management education in Japan has been too extremely inclined toward information technology education. We must change the viewpoint of the education from technology-based to use-based. In the first place, we develop three images of people with information use competence. These images are as follows: First, they can formulate or present management problems and solutions, using information or data. Second, they can critically evaluate the quality of information. Third, they can use information technology and design information systems environment. Next, we advocate for project-based learning (PBL) as an effective approach for developing these competencies. Finally, we prepare one teaching material for PBL, which deals with product portfolio management (PPM) and discuss how PBL approach enhances information use competence.
