IS Education Revisited: Reflections on a BSc Program in Business Information Systems Design

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/Conference proceedingKonferenspaper i proceeding

Abstract

The presence of the information age has greatly influenced how learning in higher education has evolved. Information Systems (IS) curricula are particularly liable with this trend and their likelihood to remain effective depends on how they orchestrate the use of technology. In this study, we evaluate an IS program that was designed and implemented in 2010. We assess its effectiveness eight years after its inception on a qualitative basis with six semi-structured interviews with designers, implementors and quality-assurers. We found that the constructive feedback received in the form of criticism, have pushed us to rethink how IS programs should enhance progressive development, with the aim to prepare IS reflective practitioners for their future in the industry.
