Effective IT curricula balances tradition with innovation. One way to enhance that balance is to examine the common threads in the various knowledge areas.
This paper provides a progress report of the joint curriculum task force effort to develop a new model curriculum for undergraduate programs in Information Systems. The curriculum work is the first collaborative effort between ACM and other professional societies associated with information systems education. The paper presents a brief background… (More)
The Institute for Certification of Computing Professionals (ICCP) and the Center for Computing Education Research (CCER) have formed a coalition of 40 universities and colleges to develop an outcome assessment examination reflecting the objectives and learning units espoused in the IS 2002 Model Curriculum. An early version of this examination was beta… (More)
This paper describes how a process for mapping the curriculum of a four-year IS degree program (Daigle et al. 2004), using the IS2002 Model Curriculum and Guidelines for Undergraduate Degree Programs in Information Systems (Gorgone et al. 2002), is useful for analyzing the impact of a proposed curriculum change. An example, based on an actual use of IS2002… (More)
The Information Systems discipline has a long history of applying model curricula to guide the particular course offerings of academic institutions. This paper provides a synopsis of the final report of IS 2002—The Model Curriculum and Guidelines for Undergraduate Degree Programs in Information Systems. The last major update, IS '97, was completed several… (More)
During the past several years, software engineers have developed various programming environments to aid in the software development process. Some of these environments, serving as pedagogical tools have focused on the coding phase (Chandhok et al 1985), (Johnson and Soloway 1983) and (Shapiro et al 1981). It is a firm belief that the emphasis, especially… (More)
This article presents the results of research to explore the nature of changes in skills over a fifty year period spanning the life of Information Systems model curricula. Work begun in 1999 was expanded both backwards in time, as well as forwards to 2012 to define skills relevant to Information Systems curricula. The work in 1999 was based on job ads from… (More)
