Abstract: The paper presents the authors’ experience in stimulating the synergy of disciplines via active learning methods; the emphasis being on project based learning. Promoting this method is demonstrated in the context of teachers’ training courses and developing a set of IT textbooks. Numerous examples are presented showing that the synergy of various disciplines is quite natural when integrating the study of IT with math & art & fashion design; math & language; history & crafts & math; electrical engineering & math. The project samples developed by teachers are inspired by ideas in textbooks and are accomplished by means of specially designed computer applications. The importance of working on projects tuned to the learner’s interest as a decisive motivation factor is emphasized. In addition authors show that the bouquet of projects becomes more colorful with every new issue of the courses thanks to the learners’ creativity and the collaborative knowledge building.
