The IS MBA Core Course: Fostering Student Creativity While Enhancing Active Learning.
Okolica, Carol
This paper describes the results of reengineering the IS (information systems) MBA (Master's of Business Administration) core course in a private university (Dowling College, New York). The focus of the course is the use of information technology from the perspective of management. In an effort to keep the course material as current as possible, the use of a textbook was eliminated and was replaced with a number of different assignments. The assignments require the students to become active learners instead of passively listening to lectures. The major assignment in the course is the Technology Watch; the purpose of this assignment is to learn how to investigate, evaluate, implement, and manage new information technologies and to understand their potential effects on business organizations. Other assignments focus on PC selection, the Internet, and software tools. In addition, students keep a learning and evaluation log. The course is continually evolving based on student feedback and emerging technologies. (Contains 11 references.) (AEF)
