About the eBook

Issues related to teaching and learning information systems (IS) concepts have received keen interest from IS academics since the discipline’s inception over 60 years ago. Bringing together cutting-edge research from over 30 international experts, Teaching Information Systems presents a timely assessment of critical issues associated with the IS curriculum, the learner, and the learning environment.

Chapters take a contemporary look at the key issues related to the teaching of IS across the globe, addressing the challenges of virtual learning environments, the drawbacks of relying solely on textbooks, and current thinking on how to align the curriculum with industry needs. Drawing lessons from faculty reflection and empirical evidence, the book provides valuable insight to IS professors and administrators invested in delivering high-quality IS education, demonstrating how instructors can design and implement a relevant and practical curriculum to meet the needs of modern-day students.

Exploring non-technical skills and non-traditional instructional materials, this erudite teaching guide will prove an essential resource for instructors in information systems, computer science, information science, and related disciplines. Its practical insights will also benefit researchers and consultants interested in applying IS research findings to practice.
