Educationally Critical Characteristics of Deep Approaches to Learning about the Concept of an Information System

Abstract

This paper reports on an empirical study investigating the relationship between the approaches to learning and levels of understanding of the concept of an information system (IS) in undergraduate IS students. The findings show educationally critical characteristics of the learning approaches that lead to the development of a deep understanding. Knowledge about these critical characteristics can be used to design learning activities likely to encourage IS students to use effective learning approaches.
