Most computing programs now have some form of integrative or capstone course in which students undertake a significant project under supervision. There are many different models for such courses and conducting these courses is a complex task. This report is intended to assist instructors of capstone courses, particularly those new to the model of teaching(More)
Complaints often expressed about undergraduate computer science or information systems programs,,, is that students graduate with adequate technical skills but often lack an understanding of organizational processes, team project experience, and the ability to integrate information technology in an organizational setting. To address this, educators have(More)
The inclusion of social issues, including ethical and professional topics, in computing curricula has become commonplace two decades after being incorporated into the ACM Computing Curricula. However, authors of academic papers and conference presentations often concentrate on integrating the broader issues of societal impact and best practices into(More)
This poster updates a paper [3] presented at ITiCSE 2006 and re-examines a ten-year effort of our institution's use of community-based non-profit organizations (NPOs) in the information systems capstone course. Computer science or information systems majors often have adequate technical skills but lack an understanding of organizational processes, team(More)
Information Technology and Information Systems have evolved as inherently interdisciplinary fields. While an essentially haphazard proliferation of programs has helped to create a field of study that can necessarily and appropriately cross boundaries between mathematics, science, engineering, and business disciplines, the historical ambiguity with respect(More)
The recommendations of the ACM Curriculum Committee on Information Systems indicate an attempt to keep abreast of both curricular changes in academia and job skill demands of the computing profession. As tie needs of both changed, new recommendations were made. The latest modell published in 1981, was the culmination of a process to update the ACM 1973(More)
