Progress in IT in the last 50 years has yielded strong and interesting influences on the development of IS Curricular and Education research. Every day, new technological devices and applications are announced. Along with falling data communications and data storage costs, it seems that Moore’s Law will continue to undergird technological progress into the future, generating the ongoing advances in computing that are experienced in our businesses, schools and homes.

These technology developments give us as IS educators many new opportunities, along with some challenges, such as the following:

  • We must keep up with, reflect upon and embrace the ongoing technology change in our curricular subject matter in order to excel in our role as MIS educators,
  • We must prepare our students to effectively and efficiently use the new IS resources in their lives,
  • We should consider and implement new technologies in our teaching methods resulting in improved knowledge delivery, comprehension and student evaluation processes,
  • Practitioner rankings of educational institutions have become an important factor in the recruitment of students, causing administration to monitor student outcomes via new data mining tools. The quality of our IS educational processes and student placements can play a role in the positioning of an educational organization based on such rankings.

We welcome high quality research papers in any major topic of IS curriculum and education.  All research methods and approaches addressing the above issues are welcomed (conceptual or empirical, design-oriented or explanation-oriented, qualitative or quantitative, and so on).  

Examples of topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Content innovations, including
    • Data Analytics and Predictive Modeling
    • Work integrated learning and live industry projects
    • Teaching Cases
  • Curriculum innovations, including
    • Design and model curricula
    • Work integrated learning
  • Innovative pedagogy, including
    • Blended and hybrid learning
    • Social networking and learning
    • Peer and collaborative learning
    • Use of online delivery methods and MOOCs
    • Learning management systems and technology mediated learning
    • Technology-enabled active learning
  • Innovative Assessment and evaluation including
    • Program assessment and accreditation issues
    • Assurance of learning
  • Doctoral education and research management
  • Emerging technologies and IS education

Submissions that cover more than one of the areas described above are encouraged in particular.
